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
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!
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.
i just had it done 3 weeks ago i was just like you i was so nervouse just thinking about a tube going down your throat made me really nervouse. but it wasnt bad at all they gave me consious sedation i was awake but really in lala land dont remember a thing never even seen the tube so no its not that bad.i had a soar throat for a day but that was all never felt nasious though.
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.
