Hi,

I'm about to have the biopsy done in a few day's and I'm VERY nervous.... Do you recommend that I take the numbing medicine - or can you do without drugs (I would rather not take any medicines).

Hi--Good luck with the procedure. I don't have experience with the numbing meds. I was asleep for mine and woke up feeling rested and otherwise fine. If I had to have a follow-up, I'd have it done the same way. I was nervous before mine (had a colonoscopy the same day) but there really isn't anything to be afraid of. The biopsy is a pretty quick procedure. You'll do fine--let us know how it went :)

I had the options of having the biopsy done with or without sedation. I opted for partial sedation, so I might as well have had no sedation at all! The procedure didn't hurt, but I gagged a lot. They sprayed a "numbing spray" on my throat to help.

Hi there:

I am a brand new member here. I just had the endoscopy and colonoscopy done a few weeks ago. "Biopsy" is such a frightening word but, you do not even know that it was done. They shoul just call it "sample" or something like that. I had a drug called Versed and don't remember a thing. I came home and took a nap for most of the afternoon. I felt like I had drank a few glasses of red wine. You said that you would rather not take the medicines and I understand that but, this is the one time you should let them give it to you. It is only for a short amount of time and why go through all of that if you don't have to? Just my opinion. Best of luck and don't be scared!
