Did u have sedation?

i had GA whitch i had to fight for cos im such a nervous person anyway. i was offered sedation last year but i personally felt i want to be completely asleep, although if you tell them your really nervous they will give you extra sedation and you wont have a clue anyway. good luck, i was like you last week and i really feel for you. you will be fine as you have been there and done it before. x

It's 10yrs since I had 1,and it was a bad experience,the doc put the tube down before I got the sedation,it was awfull

i think things would have improved from 10yrs ago. do stress that you are very nervous and you want plenty of sedation, make sure someone goes with you and have some pepermint tea or what ever helps you personally with trapped wind. that was one of the worst bits for me the trapped wind after, ive still got some of it left......oh i want to come and hug you!

Thank u for support love,glad its over xxx

Ive had one not a very pleaant experience without sedation so my advice would be to take the sedation as this makes it a lot easier to deal with.

Either way you will be fine and I hope your health is too.

God Bless
