I'm really nervous about the whole procedure. I'm 20 and having my mum come with me as I think I'm going to have the sedation. Is there always an option to have this? I only knew about the sedation because I researched the procedure - there is nothing written on my hospital letters. I'm a bit worried as my mum is driving from Portsmouth to London to come with me and don't want to waste her time if I'm not going to even be given the option of sedation.
However, if the option is there, what does it feel like to have the sedation? Is it worth having? I'm a fairly anxious person and work myself up over silly things.
For those who have had the procedure before, is there anything you wish you'd known before you had your endoscopy?
Sorry for all my questions, I'm just very curious and very anxious!
