You could ask for a shot of valium or Demerol rather than the amnesiac.
The s-scope shouldn't be as bad as the c-scope since it doesn't have as many bends to go around.
If he has a monitor, why not take advantage of the "show" to see what's going on in there....it's something a actually look forward to.
The 2 meds are usually Versed and Fentanyl. My last c-scope, I got one mg more of Versed than the previous year and was ticked because I don't remember much of what I saw on the monitor. I much prefer remembering than not.....but I've had 7 so far....
do what you feel is best for you....
