On my last scope before christmas I had a lot of sedation, but still felt so much pain and discomfort - to the point that they put a second line in my other hand to give me more (this must have knocked me out cold!), I though I was awake through the entire thing, but the GI doing it said he was chatting to me, as was the nurse, but I have no recollection of it!
I've only had flexi-sigs without sedation, there's no way I could handle a full scope without it!
I'm glad you've made it out the other side Ok!
