Its not as much as a colonscopy but you still have to clean things out. I'm doing one on the 29 of May. I only have to prep the night before starting at 5pm. I've already had one so its not that bad. I just hope they can find out why I have the pain I do. I think it would be better if they have to do surgery to get rid of the pain. The last time I had one they found 4 spots (sores) whatever. I hope they find something cause the consent pain is driving me crazy.

I had no prep, just a day of clean liquids.

  you guys are lucky ducks.  i am doing the video endoscopy as we speak.  i had to drink a full gallon of that lovely golytely stuff last night. i was not allowed to have any fluids until i swallowed the pill.  two hours later i was allowed to have clear liquids and 2 hours after that i was allowed a "light lunch".  i could pretty much eat what i want, but nothing "greasy".  the harness is not as bulky or heavy as i thought it might be.  i get to take it off 8 hours after i started the test.  the only restriction i have is i was told i can not bend over........to me that means no house work.
  so i guess doctors have different protocals for prepping for the test.   good luck with yours.           pebbles

I didn't have to do any prep.  Just no solid food 12 hours prior to the test.  I could have liquids 2 hours after taking the capsule and solids after 4 hours.
