Was wondering how long in the normal transit time (from food going in your mouth to coming out the other end)
I had a shape marker study done (had to swallow 2 capsules a day for 3 days which had different shapes in for each day. On day 5 I had an X-ray to see where they had got to) I had to stop all laxatives for 3 days before taking the capsules. When I had my X-ray all the shapes were still at the beginning of my transverse colon so they said my transit time was at lest 8 days. This test diagnosed me with slow transit constipation (the nerves and muscles in my bowel don't work properly) I had surgery to remove my sigmoid colon last year and my transit time is now 2 days. You can test this yourself by eating sweet corn as it comes out whole. Just intrested to know other people's transit time.
