Unhappy Endoscopy looming! Scared to death about it.

Hi everyone,
After seeing a consultant last week the decision has been made to go ahead and remove my right thyroid lobe and the 3cm complex nodule attached to it. This was to be expected and Im happy to go ahead with the surgery. One thing Im really dreading is the Endoscoy I have to have on Wednesday, the consultant said there is no way of avoiding this procedure as they have to check my vocal cords etc etc. I am really worried about having it done, Im not nervous at all about the upcoming surgery, they can do what they want as long as I am asleep but this was the one thing that I didnt want. If theres anyone on here who has had the same thing then would you please let me know how it went for yourself. Please be honest as I'd rather know what to expect regarding pain levels, anasthetic vs no anasthetic and any tips to help it go smoother for me. The doctor explained everything to me but only people who have actually had the procedure will really know how it feels.

Many thanks for your help xxxx
