I had a barium enema on Monday, today is Thursday. I am still extremely bloated and today started passing white hard like chunks. What can I do to relieve the pain and discomfort?

What you are experiencing is very common after this procedure.  Drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of pure/filtered water daily, add 1-2 tablespoons of ground flax seeds daily to your diet, eat plenty of dark green leafy vegetables with at least two meals daily, and consider taking some probiotics to repopulate your intestine with friendly bacteria.  You should be having at least one bowel movement daily.  If your systems do not resolve by Tuesday, contact your primary care physician.  http://www.countrydoc.com
