Has anyone had a bad experience with IV conscious sedation? Had Colonscopy Friday.

i have had bad experiences with IV conscious sedation and inflitrarion. Had a colonscopy was told I would have a general due to many medical problems. I asked the nurse to not use my hand as it never works but she didn’t believe me. So gave me first push nothing, second again nothing she said you should be snoring 1 more nothing. Dr in a hurry as they r lined up so I had 4 polyps removed cauterized and felt it all. I am having nightmares reliving this. I was told I would get Prophonol which works great on me. Medicine doesn’t work on me like normal people. I don’t drink, smoke, not overweight, vegetarian. They only had nurse anesthetist so no MD to give me the right drug, I am having PTSD. I am so fed up with medical field not listening to patients who know their body. I am not a drug addict either. It was awful
