Yes, you can definitely be put ALL THE WAY out for the sig. I kept insisting that I had to know nothing and that I was hard to sedate. My GI knocked me out cold.

Just because they don't usually do things a certain way does not mean that they can't
Ulcerative Colitis since about 1976
Pan colitis since at least 1994
Never had a flare until MD gave massive dose of Magnesiun while hospitalized for bronchitis.
During subsequent hospitalization for the flare, GI looked me straight in the eye and said "don't ever stop using Asacol."
Insurance company thought otherwise so I'm on no meds.
