Today I had a endoscopy done without sedation- after reading online weather to get sedated or not it was a 50/50 choice for me as I was in two minds and after deciding what I wanted to do I decided in my head I didn’t want to be sedated.reason being is I wanted to be fully aware of what was going on and didn’t want to feel slouchy afterwards.
My experience was absolutely fine, the nurses are really reassuring the only thing that is a bit scary is when it gets to your throat and you have to swallow for the endoscope to go down but once you swallow you can’t feel a thing
The procedure for me lasted 12minutes, all I can say is concentrate on your breathing and you will absolutely be fine.
if you want to ask me anything more about my procedure , please ask,
