Stomach Ulcers

My doctor believes I have stomach ulcers and wants me to swallow a camera. What does swallowing the camera entail? i.e. could it be done in the consulting rooms, or do you need to go to theatre?

Grant, it can de done at the doctor’s rooms under mild sedation. The camera is about as thick as your pinkie and is pushed down your oesophagus into the stomach – a mildly uncomfortable procedure. Good luck.
