I chose to be awake
I would always choose to be awake in any procedure if at all possible.. I have read about ccomplications from sedation . Very rarely it can lead to stroke or heart attack. Since I have no trouble swallowing quite large pills , I opted for the 'normal' procedure without sedation..
The procedure was quick and painless, had a throat spray and was talked through by the nurse so felt calm and confident and was given a guided tour inside my stomach. ;)
I drove home myself.
