So I've had part of Capsule-oscopy. Which involved taking a dummy camara pill (27mm x 14mm).
So it involved going to the Royal Free hospital in London
Taking the dummy camera after doing a consent form and the whole thing too much 5minutes.
Going home and then searching for the pill after each bowel movement. Unfortunately I didn't find it.
So back to the royal Free for a scan. The scan was with what looked like large/oversized metal detector wand. And took less than a minute in the consaultion room.
NoI im waiting on the full scan with a live camara that will take 2photos ever second producing a video of the whole of my digestive system which can be 17hrs long
Downside to this was on Monday paying £21.50 for a tube ticket and not even getting a seat. Being in pain and feeling unsteady I asked to have seat explaining I was unwell and was ignored by all the posh looking london business types. A couple of minutes later a lady with a bump of board offered me her seat which declined as I felt guilty taking the seat from a pregnant lady.
The 2 days later going back this time costing £21.70
It was very frustrating spending 4hrs travelling for not much more time taking a pill and a quick body scan with metal detector. They could of sent it to my local hospital gastro team to take the pill and A&E have a metal detector wand. And in 4-6 weeks doing all again. Next time for the real test.
Has anyone on here had this type of oscopy.
