My little sister just her her first one a year or so ago.She was telling me that she was a bit scared because of the pain she might experience.She thought they did it without anesthesia! And no,my sister *isn't* stupid....she's very intelligent,thank you very much!
How long does it take for that camera pill to go through the entire system? Do you have to fast during the whole time? Even if it takes 4 days? To ME, that sounds even worse than the regular procedure.
In My opion, the prep is the worst part of the procedure. But, that could be because I’m ‘’full of it’’ lol!
I too like the idea that if they do find something that needs to be dealt with, they do it immediately. The pill way, people could get scared and decide to ignore the findings which would be more detrimental to their health.
Here is a tip for those who must have this procedure done. When you get to the part where you have to drink the gallon of stuff as fast as you can, park the gallon by the toilet with long tubing, and just sit there and drink. It will save you a lot of running since the stuff runs out as soon as you take it in.
The faster you consume it, the faster and better it cleans you out, and the less likely you’ll have to repeat the cleansing because you didn’t get it all out the first time.
I found the cleansing part, horrid. There CAN be other complications from the procedure itself, but I can’t see how the pill would be any easier. I supposed if you can’t take the pre-op meds, then the pill could be helpful, but if they find something, then you have to deal with the pre-op meds anyway.
After everything is done, you have no memory of the procedure, at all, and coming out from the meds isn’t that bad at all. It’s much easier than the anesthesia you get for surgery.
