I went through before... 

You will have to fast from the day before.. after dinner no food intake till next day test. 

for sedation, they will spray Xylocaine spray in your throat to numb it. normally wont use full anesthesia unless elderly or young children.. 

the scope is about the thickness of your little finger..

The feeling.. is like you try inducing vomit X 10.. during the procedure you will vomit alot.. natural response will be to resist so there will be a couple of nurse to hold you down.. 

Try not to cough too much during the session as you may end up with sore throat.. whole session about 5 mins...

you can opt for sedation. they can give u a medicine to make you sleepy, but not general anesthesia.

I did it recently under sedation, just conked out and experienced the deepest sleep in more than 10 years. LOL

No food after 10 pm, arrange for the procedure to be done as early as possible so that you won't have to starve for too long. You will know the result on the same day but tissue test will be out in about 2 days. 

GERD?

The new procedure is anything but uncomfortable, at least for me. I did it in early Jan this year. My relative did it 2 years ago while awake during procedure and it was reportedly a traumatic experience.

Colonoscopy more troublesome as you need to take a lot of meds to clear up the system prior to procedure but new technology has made it easier for both the doctor and the patient. I am not the expert, maybe can go ask KPK.

Looks like gastroscopy seems more 'scary' than colonoscopy.

Thanks folks for the inputs, for the full knock out option, how long does it last before the patient regains his consciousness?
