having endoscopy in two days

I was wondering whether or not anyone had any nausea from the medication they give you to knock you out for the endoscopy? I just had a laparoscopy done last week and I woke up from it very nauseas, that was done with general anesthesia though so I'm hoping this one isn't so strong. Anyone know about this?

Also, I am very nervous about gagging and not being able to get the tube down. Is it really as bad as it sounds? Thanks

Carisa

Re: having endoscopy in two days

When I had the endoscopy done it wasn't a general. It was a mixture of versed and something else, so I felt fine when I woke up. I never saw the tube, felt the biopsies or anything. My throat wasn't even sore. It was the easiest test I ever had. I hope yours goes as well!

Re: having endoscopy in two days

Ooh thank you. They are using versed and something else. I can't remember what the other thing was. I just really hope mine is as easy as yours. I'm so nervous!

Thank you for the encouragement.

Re: having endoscopy in two days

I've had several and never had an issue. Like the previous poster; I don't feel it; don't remember it and love the feeling of blissfulness when I wake up!

Re: having endoscopy in two days

Great, that's what I like to hear! I am so unbelievably nervous, even more so than I was last week for an actual surgery under general anesthesia. I hope when it's all said and done I can say I was worrying for no reason.

Thanks

Re: having endoscopy in two days

thank you guys, you don't know how much it helps to read these posts. I am going in in about 2 hours and I'm freaking out so reading these does calm the fears a little.

Wish me luck.

Re: having endoscopy in two days

Thank you guys for all of your encouragement! I finally had it done today. I was given versed and something else I forget the name. It worked wonderfully. I don't remember a thing. The last thing I remember was gagging when they were spraying my throught. Next thing I knew I was in the recovery room. So basically I was overly worried for nothing.

Oh, and I have no ulcers or gastritis, which was suspected by my doctor. I do have something wrong with the "flap" as my dr. called it. I guess it doesnt close correctly so acid gets built up and is causing a stomach ache. Now I am being told to take three prilosec a day before each meal. I have one more test to take now and I can't remember what it is called. I'm going to call tomorrow to schedule it.

Thanks again,
Carisa
