SpAsManWow you are so informative. I especially like all the links and websites along with it. I did the pill cam test in March this year. Test showed 3/4 of my stomach has inflamation. Yet the upper gi scope done by different gi doc in Feb/04 came back negative. Doc says things can change even in a few weeks leave alone a year.

SpAsManFor this pill cam test I had to stop eating/drinking anything after midnite and go to the doctors clinic at 9am next morning. I was allowed to drink clear liquids in the morning. At 2 pm or 6 hrs after the capsule they said I could start eating normal foods. At 4 pm I had to go back to his office to have the electrodes removed. I never even noticed when I passed out the capsule next day. So you can take liquids but try not to take anything with high sugar. Your doctor will give also give you all the details prior to the test or you can call his office and find out beforehand.

I am not aware of the pill double side or double flash. They did not mention anything about it. I was given one capsule to swallow and sent home with all the equipment. I will ask about it on my next visit to his office.

O,i wouldn't be that stress about not pooping the pill,it can take up to few weeks to expell it and before they decide to cut you open.

Spas, sorry I just saw this post today, where was I? The first link is amazing. I have not read the second link. It sheds some light on the IE and LG issues. Thank you for such an informative post/link.I will post this link on the Pain/gas/bloating tread as it may help us understand the LG issue a little better.

There is something on our tv's (the uk) about some guy who is 49 stones,i think some guy is going to be shrunk to micro-organism size and will tour the inside the fat mans body in a micro pod to get a close up of the guys organs.This man can EAT god his diet is unbelievable (i thought i was bad for scoffing) but this guy can scoff 40 pints of beer a day,and he has 4 breakfasts in the morning
