I have written several times before about a fascinating conversation I had with my previous gastroenterologist. We were discussing the pros and cons of getting a Colonoscopy since I had turned 50. I was resistant. However, the good doctor trying to incentivize me talked about how 100% of her patients with Parkinson's, reported complete remission of symptoms after the procedure. For some, it lasted weeks, and for some it lasted months. She speculated that the mystery agent must be profofol as some patients even forgot for some time that they had Parkinson's while in the recovery room. It a turned out that her own mom had Parkinson's and therefore she was up to speed with the latest in Parkinson's disease treatment at that time.
Fast forward. I came across this article below and other articles that reference the same source and interpret the research for the laypeople that we are. There are other post hospitalized reports also that directly implicate propofol. Enjoy the reads below , don't get your hopes too high and do rush to schedule your next Colonoscopy 👍😂😅🤓
