What happens when the "pill cam" doesn't come out?

Just wondering if anyone has had a endoscopy pill capsule that did not expel?  It has been two weeks and mine is resting in the lower pelvis.  The findings show Crohn's with strictures. I worry that is may be stuck in a stricture.  Any info would be helpful.

Over three weeks with pill cam.  Going tomorrow for a CT Scan and the Dr. will then tell me what we're going to do to get it out.  I have been reading everyone talking about Crohn's and mine is just the opposite.  I do not have diarrhea....well sometimes, but mine problem is that I have keep ending up in the ER with partial blockages of the small intestine.  I wonder if there is anyone out there who has strictures and how do you manage to keep them from causing blockages?
