Thank you for your reply.
Please note that there is a connection between the small intestines and the biliary system. You will definately not pass a rock hard ball after a barium meal (can not pass a barium meal in the form of a rock hard ball), as it is a fluid that is given and will be passed as a fluid. It sounds like you maybe suffering from obstruction of the colon and it is therefore, imperative that you have the colonoscopy, as this may be the reason for your abnormal stools.
