Hi Herb,

Glad you are hitting some nerves!  Keep it up.

Just so you know, I recently had a small “pill-cam” endoscopy — where the patient swallows a “pill” that is about the size of a large vitamin and it has a camera and lights in it.  It takes about 40,000 photos of your entire intestinal tract as it makes its way through.  Because the images are transmitted wirelessly to a belt I had to wear, I asked my doctor to check with Cyberonics.  He was able to get through to them (surprise!) and they said that the VNS should be “zero-ed out.”  I guess that means turned off.  

So I went to my psychiatrist to have it zero-ed out the day before my pill-cam procedure, and that is when we discovered that my battery was near the end of service.

Anyway, just in case anyone ever asks you, the VNS should be turned off for “pill-cam” endoscopies.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving.  I am most thankful for you & Joyce.

–Kim
