I haven't been on for quite a while but some of you may recognise my name. I have just had another lung xray and been diagnosed with Bibasal atelectasis and am going to see a consultant next week. I have read up on it all and think I might be asked to have a Bronchoscopy which I don't really want to have. I am going to ask for sedation and am wondering if any of you can tell me what that would involve. I am 77 and have been really frail the past year or so and just don't want to go through any procedure that is painful . Any information on sedation, etc., would be much appreciate. Thank you Louisiana
