PillCam transit time

My daughter is undergoing a bunch of tests to figure out what's wrong with her. They did the PillCam yesterday and she pooped it out in 3 hours!! Is that normal?

Wow! I have had one pill cam before and as far as I was aware at the time it take at least 5-6 hours to get to the ileum? then can take anywhere from 12-48 hours to pass?

My cam got temporarily stuck (due to a stricture) and I wasnt aware how long it was in there as I didnt notice when I passed it out.

Hopefully someone else can confirm this?
