Haven't had it. I'm sure you will be fine. If it got stuck, it would be easy to get out. Relax. Let us know what the results are. Ask for a copy of the video. :)

So sorry you're feeling worried! I had it, and it was easy peasy. Also, did they do anything ahead of time with an x-ray type thing? Our insurance required it: it looks through your bowels to make sure there is no obstruction so the pill goes right on through. Although honestly, it's really small - if you can pass a marble, you'd be able to pass this sucker, no problem. :-)

Much simpler than I was expecting, honestly, although the belt was a bit bigger, too.
