    Would you dig the camera out of your poop?

    So, one of my mother-in-laws has GI tract problems and in order to see what's going on in her intestines, they decided to take endoscopic pictures --but not the normal way you would with a scope.

    With a freakining mini-camera in a pill that she literally swallowed.

    Seriously, the size of an extra strength Advil--you swallow it and it wirelessly transmits about 900,000 pictures to a DVD over an 8 hour period as it winds it's way down your GI tract. It has no battery, it derives it's energy for the camera, light and computer chip in the pill from an set of wires attached to your chest.

    And when you poop it out you flush it because all the info has already been transmitted--it has no film.

    I know, cool story Bro--but it's pretty incredible.

    Although I couldn't help wondering-- would you dig it out of your poop?

    You know, as a keepsake? :O

    I had a little camera on a tube shoved down into my wee-wee hole and snaked to my bladder. Dr. said it would cause "some discomfort." He was a master of the understatement.

    Also, I swallowed a $600 crown once. Thought about looking for it upon exit...just couldn't bring myself to do it. I've always wondered how much it would take for me to go treasure hunting in my own feces. I guess more than $600.

    Yeah, but after you found it--are you putting it back in your mouth?

    Can't be enough antiseptic in the world for that to happen.

    I have a history of intestional disease and I remember having that test done a few years ago. Had to walk around a whole day at work with the computer strapped to me. Doctor told me it can be risky as some patients have had the camera pill get stuck requiring emergency surgury. I made sure when it came out, I threw some devil horns down at it.

    :uhhuh:


    Doctor said he never saw it.

    When I turned 40 the doctor took out this machine that looked like a friggin coat rack and said it was time to check my colon for things like blood. I said "if you're planning on shoving that thing up my ass, I can make a prediction right now."

    I walked out and decided to save myself for the colon doctor I marry, should I ever turn faig.

    Medical update.

    As noted by LIDH, the pill can and DID get stuck and my mother-in-law had emergency surgery this am. Hadn't passed it in the prescribed 7 days and after multiple X-rays and MRIs showing it not moving, they decided to go in this am and get it.

    I get to hang out at Hackensack Hospital tonite *****es!!

    I always give him kudos for that joke. That whole Rodney Dangerfield HBO special has given me about 20 lines I've been using since 1988.

    Oh I rip off jokes all the time. Hell, 99.9% of my posts here are copy/paste jobs from the "Kids Who Hid In Department Store Clothing Racks While Their Mom Was Shopping" Facebook page. You'd be surprised how easy it is to find context without even trying.
