I was totally out for my recent endoscopy + colonoscopy. But for just an endoscopy, I am not sure what they do. Your doctor's office can tell you. If you request it, they may do full anesthesia. But you will probably need someone to drive you home.
Okayy so it is like real anethesia? I know sometimes with colonoscopys they do like a light sedation. I was kinda hoping for that. Haha I always cry from anesthesia.. just a weird reaction I have. This should be a breeze though Im not too worried.. I've had two other major surgeries this year. Hopefully with this diagnosis I can make changes to my diet and prevent future problems. Thanks for replying!
If you've ever been put under, it's like that. You go into the hospital, put on the gown, get an IV inserted, wait. Get wheeled into the operating room, put under, wake up in recovery. Always feels weird to me going to sleep in the operating room and waking up in a different room 1 second later. Easy peasy.
