That's a good news!
BTW, I have a pretty stupid one. So, I was told that I will be receiving an "IV sedation". But I thought IV is for general anesthesia and sedation is through oral route (pills)?? Also, how sedated did you feel throughout the procedure? and afterwards? Could you eat or move around? I know it's probably a bad time to bombard you with questions. And thanks so much!
I've always been sedated either by IV, or by an injection in my hand. After the sedative is administered, they have sprayed the back of my throat to make it numb. With the exception of one time, I don't remember anything. I recall getting injected, my throat sprayed, being told to close my eyes and breathe deeply, and then "waking up" when it was over in the recovery room. (apparently I was never truly asleep, I just don't remember much of it due to the sedative's effects) Once I was awake; however, I was fine. A little bit of a sore throat, but otherwise I felt back to normal. I could drink, eat, get out of bed and walk, etc. They do recommend that you take care (or avoid, if possible) operating heavy machinery, signing any legal documents, and driving for the next 24 hours until everything has totally worn off.
I was also given the option of no sedative and just the numbing spray, but I have a terribly sensitive gag reflex. Out of the question!
