I would like to know if anyone has had this procedure of a camera traveling through intestines taking photos and how it worked.

Don't know if this is too late, but I can explain what is it. I had this down before I got my colon removed to rule out Chron's disease. Basically you swallow a pill-sized camera and it moves through your digestive tract recording the entire time. It will eventually be pooped out around 12 hours later. You honestly don't even notice it after your swallow. The camera is supposed to help see where all the imflamation is and give the doctors more information.
