scared of endoscopy
« on: April 21, 2014, 06:59:37 PM »
I have a stomach endoscopy this coming Monday and I am terrified of going under a sedative. I have issues with letting go and letting the Dr handle me while i'm asleep. I just have a fear of passing out :(

I had an endoscopy when I was 13/14.  Was terrified about being put under anesthesia.  You honestly don't have anything to be worried about.  A good half hour before my endoscopy they set me up with an IV filled with some pretty mellowing drugs.  All the anxiety and fear just melted away into relaxation.  It felt like a few seconds had passed when I came to but it had apparently been a few hours after the endoscopy.  Simply put the Doctor will make sure you are extremely comfortable from beginning to end.

Yeah my wife told me she didn't even have time to get worried about it(she was put under for surgery). Doctor said it's just a mild sedative so I wonder what they mean by it.
