Interesting, now only if all the hospitals will get them! lol

The "pill camera" is something that's rarely used instead of the usual colon camera here where I live, I asked for the pill and they said we don't use that here. I live in the biggest city in Canada and I was surprised, what the heck! Had to be a lie or something, makes no sense.

Now if only the handle was like a golf club all the doctors would have to get one right away. Maybe we could tell them it would improve their golf game??
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Your right we need to ask about it when we are seeing our GI's I am truly hoping that it will be far better then the other and easier on the system. It would save lots of worrying and allow for far more people to get tested. I put off the scopes for years and it did not do me any good. lol gail

What i suggest you to do is to print this page:

http://www.neoguidesystems.com/technology.html

and fax it to ALL the GI office in your area.

Yeah, well, I came across an even more interesting and pertinent (to me) article!!!

Longer Colonoscopy Time Ups Detection

http://www.webmd.com/colorectal-cancer/news/20061213/longer-colonoscopy-time-ups-detection

This study analyzed more than 7,800 colonoscopies done by 12 gastroenterologists from January 2003 through March 2004.
 
Ooops. I didn't mean to disparage the original posted article. Its just that I find it hard to get enthused about ANY procedure, even just swallowing a pill, that HAS to be preceded by the HOR-EYE-BUL prep!!
 
If I gotta go thru that d*amn prep you darn well better be sure you don't miss anything and I don't have to redo the prep for another procedure!!!!  'Cause if I do you're gonna have one EYE-RATE ole broad in your face!
 
Forgive me for being so crochety. Its been one of "those" days.


Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
