Hi, has anyone had a Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy procedure? My appointment is on Thursday and the information they sent gives me a choice of SEDATION so I am asleep for both procedures or have a throat spray for the gastroscopy and GAS and AIR for the colonoscopy. If I opt for the sedation, I have to arrange for someone to come along to escort me home afterward. Both my son and daughter are unable to get time of work on that day. I was thinking of the other options (so i dont need and escort) - throat spray and gas and air, but I’ve read that people with Fibro react badly because they feel more pain than others during the procedure (which makes sense) and have suffered with Fibro flare for days after.
Can anyone let me know if they have experience of these procedures.
