I passed the capsule in just under 7 hours. It was still flashing and taking pictures inside the bowl of the toilet. My time was so rapid that good pictures could not be obtained. It could be that your husband passed the capsule and didn't see it.
However, at this point, I think he needs to phone the GI or doctor that prescribed the capsule endoscopy and let him know that the pill has not passed. They can order a xray to see if it is still in your hubby's bowels.
As for how long it took the Remicade to work - I had significant improvement in my bowels after the third infusion. However, I had "mild" CD when I started on Remicade. It was prescribed more for my severe arthritis.
Call the GI and let him know that the pill camera has not been seen. I hope Remicade works well for your husband!
