    Has anyone had the Bravo test?

    My doctor (who is a top GI doc at a well known teaching hospital) wants me to have a test during an endoscopy called Bravo, where a capsule with a camera is attached to my esophagus for 2 days, in order to track my PH balance. Following UPPP surgery a year ago I have had acid reflux, nausea and lack of appetite, so the doctor wants to see exactly what's going on. But he would like to do an endoscopy, colonoscopy and Bravo all at the same time, so I am a bit apprehensive. Has anyone had the Bravo test and if so, do you recommend it?
