COMPLICATIONS OF CAPSULE ENDOSCOPY




WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS OF CAPSULE ENDOSCOPY?

Although complications may occur, they are rare when doctors who are specially trained and experienced in this procedure perform the test. A potential risk could be retention of the capsule. It is important for you to recognise early signs of possible complications. If you have a fever after the test, trouble swallowing or increasing chest or abdominal pain, tell your doctor immediately.


If any of your questions have not been answered here, please feel free to discuss them with the nurse or your doctor before the procedure begins.
