Capsular endoscopy
My mother has recently undergone capsular endoscopy . While she was ingesting the capsule (which is supposed to reach the small intestine as we were told), it got stuck in the stomach due to the large capacity of the stomach. For that they had to perform an endoscopy so that the capsule reaches the intestine (and she was not sedated at that time so it was very painful) So my question is how do we come to know that the capsule has been flushed out?as in any test that can scan and show that the capsule is not in the body now.
