I went in for my appointment today at 3pm. I asked to be sedated for my endoscopy because I was worried about gagging. I had a young male nurse who tried more than 3 times to put a drip in which left me feeling like a pin cushion. anyway, I got called in and they asked me some questions.. they put oxygen around my head and into my nose, then strapped some weird contraption around my head and I had to bite on it. I then lay on my side and he put the sedation in. I felt a bit drowsy but was totally aware of what was going on. They then stuck this thick tube down my throat and bam, I started to choke and then was sick over the two female nurses. They let me calm down for about 10 sections and shoved it down again.... Same thing happened except I was literally struggling to breathe and was choking on my own vomit. After it was done and I felt the entire thing.. I was taken to recovery for about 30 mins. Another hour and a half of waiting for the results they told me I had a hurnia and sent me on my way with a leaflet. My throat is now absolutely killing and feels like they have got a razor blade down there and taken off a layer of skin. I'm now on the sofa trying to drink which I'm finding pretty difficult. I will never have that done again. I'm traumatised. Ask for double sedation AND throat spray if you are having this done. It really is not pleasant.
