Smile Nose bleeds & cauterizing

I have had recent nose bleeds that were difficult to stop. I saw an ENT Dr. this past Friday andhe suctioned and washed out my nose tne applied a TAMPON type item in my Left nostril and made it enlarge by spraying water into that nasal cavity. Well, It was probably the most painful thing I have ever had done and I have had 5 children and a heart attack.! I begged the Dr. to give me some sedation but he said "they don't do that and he would spray some numing solution that would help. Well I DID NOT!!
I will have the tampon removed on Tuesday and at that time I am sure he will want to cauterize it. I have to have sedation or something..I will not go through that again!
I am extremely clausterphobic and have sever fear of not being able to swallow. I even have sedation during dental work.
Can I find a Dr. that will give me sedation? I live in League City, Texas 77573 area.
