Hi there,

I’m due for an endoscopy (currently no longer have a date due to COVID) and am just very nervous about what to expect. 
I have quite a low pain tolerance and an awful gag reflex, would it be worth me requesting sedation for the procedure or is it not that bad?

I’m the first member of my family (that I know of) to have one so just don’t know what to expect. 
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated (please be brutally honest)
