Moret's ordeal began when unbearable stomach pains sent him to the hospital two months ago. Doctors inserted a tube down his nose and into his stomach in an attempt to relieve the agonizing pressure.

They determined Moret had some sort of a blockage that required surgery. Two weeks later, he was back in the hospital for yet another test.

He swallowed a camera pill, which is about the size of a giant vitamin for doctors to get a look inside his stomach, intestines and colon. Moret left the office with leads attached to his body, where the camera would transmit data onto a recorder for doctors.
