Pill Cam Vid

It's short but shows anyone who might be considering or is scheduled to have a Capsule Endscopy aka Pill Cam what it looks like. I took a photo when I did my last one but I think this is better. I didn't show the harness as I was in a rush to get out of the doctor's office.

I did learn that the leads they attach to your belly aren't actually "necessary" but are used to provide "location data" on the pill cam while it's going through your body so when it's viewed it's easier for the doctors to figure out where in your GI tract they are seeing.

Hope it might be useful/helpful for folks
