I don't understand what your mean, if they used this kind of sedation and let you are somewhat aware during the endoscopy procedure was used and cooperated with them? I think if you were asked to DO something during the
procedure, it is very uncomfortable.
I did once endoscopy and they used porpofol IV and Lidocaine and put me to sleep completely. I waked up from immediately after the procedure and no any problem. I did once colonoscopy but I don't know what kind of sedation I was used, but it is also fine. this time I will do EGD and colonoscopy both
at same time on June 6. I hope everything OK.
