My DH will be having his first routine colonoscopy this year sometime. We are already both a bit concerned about the sedation since he has never had any type of sedation for anything. Are there a lot of risks with the sedation they use for this? What were most of your experiences afterwards? Were you nauseaus or did you have vomiting? Dizzy? Drowsy for a very long period of time?
I had a colonoscopy several years ago. I didn't have any sedation. I didnt have any nausea or dizziness afterwards. It was somewhat uncomfortable because I had a hysterectomy in 1985 and have a lot of adhesions. I hope everything goes well for your son-in-law.
I agree with Alesis (is that from the musical gear co.?). I have had scopes at both ends, and was sedated for both. Once the needle is in (that's my biggest problem), it was lights out. Then awake in recovery . But I don't remember the ride home (I wasn't driving) or getting into bed. After recovery, the last thing I remember was waking up in my bed. No nausea, dizziness, or any problems.
