They did mine through an IV--they get you into one of those lovely gowns and then they take you down to the room where they do the scope. For me I remember them laying me down on my side and they put a little thing in my mouth to keep my teeth from clamping down on the tube. I remember thinking, wait I am not nearly out enough yet! LOL, but I dont remember anything after that until waking up a little during the procedure-but I must emphasize NO PAIN OR DISCOMFORT just confusion
then they must have amped up my dose cuz I went out again and then I remember them wheeling me out
they basically give you just enough so that you dont feel it, its a pretty fast procedure so if they gave you more, it would take longer to wake up than to have it done!!
I had mine to do a biopsy for Celiac Disease (woo hoo! I'm allergic to bread, yay!
they just had a little thingy on the end of the scope that could take a small sample of my small intestine.
