You know what I really have a hard time understanding? WHY are so many places doing the camera endoscopy BUT NOT using the dissolvable pill first to see if it will pass?
I am assuming maybe it has something to do with if sometimes the CE itself passes and on one sees it why go to the expense of the dissolvable pill and then have the patient not see IT when and if it passes.
But I gotta tell you - with "my" situation (and 30 years of raising dogs) it wouldn't bother me one iota to catch and paw thru each stool until I found it or the dissolving time passed.
I know a couple in the forum have done the dissolvable pill first. Did you have any trouble finding it when it passed?
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.
