A little scared.... Again!

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi all,

I have had my date for my combined endoscopy and sigmoidoscopy (not colonoscopy like I'd agreed with the consultant rolleyes) it's on 24th april.

I am not really bothered by the sigmoidoscopy but the endoscopy is scaring me a little. I think I'm gonna have the sedation but I'm scared of being out of it. I hate that feeling of being "high".

Can anyone share there experience of having one with me? Good or bad?

Does anyone have any tips? Suggestions?

The diet sheet was a bit confusing aswell! So any tips with that would be gratefully recieved.

I know I need this investigation done and I am happy to have it done. I just need to know what I'm in for.

Thanks for reading!
