soonersfan, the medication you are talking about
is called Versed. It is an amnesiac. They give it to you thru your IV and you are sedated and sleepy. You will remember nothing of the proceedure at all. Connie is right, after the proceedure they take you to a short stay recovery room. Usually they keep you for about
4 hours. It can be longer if you are having any kind of complication such as bleeding or excessive pain, swelling, etc. The site is tender for several days after the proceedure and there are some minor restrictions. Before you leave the recovery room they will go over everything with you and give you a copy of your discharge orders. Versed is absolutely wonderful for it's intended use. I have had it three times before OP surgeries and I can tell you it is great.
