Mine came off in about
10-12 days.. I had a sense of something being caught in my throat and not being able to wash it down while the capsule was still there. it was not a great feeling but I was able to deal with it. I was aware it was there but it did not HURT... maybe the doctor inserting it or the size of your esophagus makes a difference.. could not say for sure.. as soon as it came loose I was aware that the feeling of something being caught in my throat was gone.
The results of my Bravo test were what helped my surgeon feel confidant that I was in need of and a candidate for the Nissen Fundoplication. This test was the last thing my insurance company needed to approve my procedure.
I was taken off my PPI (Nexium) for 10 days. in the first 5 days I had developed ulcers in my esophagus. the Bravo proved that I was not going to be able to control my problem with medication....
I slept in my recliner from day 2 until I was allowed to go back on my PPI. Uncomfortable yes, painful.. mine was not..
good luck with your results...
