Hope you are well. I'll definitely be thinking supportive thoughts for you on Friday. Good luck. Hope all goes well, and you're as pain-free as possible.
On the topic of endoscopy...My first one was done five years ago when I had a colonoscopy. I was very lightly sedated (versed), and remember it all. In August, when I had it done again, I had an IV line put in just in case, but the doctor gave me the option of doing it without any sedation, which I chose. Honestly, it wasn't that big a deal. There was a great nurse who talked me through it, which I'm sure helped. I just didn't feel like having to recover from sedation. I know not everyone could handle it, but I'd do it again.
So, it can't be that bad, can it? I survived! With sedation, it's a piece of cake!
Just got back from dinner with my kids...it's going to be tough getting up tomorrow morning!
