Coped well with sedation

by Silvia
(Wales, United Kingdom)

The sedation really helped. I am a very anxious person, so I asked to be sedated. It was still uncomfortable and I remember gagging, but the sedation took away any feeling of panic. It was not painful. I remember burping while I was there, but not afterwards. The doctor and nurses were all very gentle and helpful and explained everything before, during and afterwards. So, while it was not a pleasant experience, I coped well. Also, it did not last very long, or it didn’t feel very long. My throat was a bit sore the day after but nothing serious.

Hi Sylvia! Glad to to hear that you didn’t panic. If you are well informed, and you know what to expect, there is nothing to worry about :)
