I've had two. Easy peasy, honestly. I was nervous for the first one. I don't remember either of the procedures. Here they give you an IV, monitor your heart rate, and check your blood pressure during the procedure. Afterwords, they give you toast and some water and make you chill for about a half hour, then you can leave.

Had 8 one with sedation ok last one took longer as had five biopsies from stomach lining it’s not nice but find on way home ten minutes after.

Easy peasy for me too. It’s like taking a nap! They give you conscious sedation thru IV, and even tho they took biopsies, I woke up and felt nothing. Went home good as new.

I was out like a light then up wanting apple juice. The hardest part for me is they put in a mouth peice which was uncomfortable and they told me to not talk, but the drug made me do it. I woke up out of it.

No sedation. Was fine. Not pleasant but didn't want to be out of it.
