My Procedure Went Well

I just thought I would write an update on my procedure. I have to say, propofol is such a nice way to be anesthetized. I didn't even get to countdown I just went out and woke up when it was over. I had no hangover, very little drowsiness, and no side effects. Frankly, if this was what they used for knee surgery I would get my knees replaced. Anyway, all went well, the doctor thanked me for doing a good prep, it did make me wonder if many people don't follow the directions. I had one small polyp removed and it has been sent out to be biopsied. I will get the results in 10-14 days. The doctor said he was 98% sure it was benign. He said if it is, he will see me in 7-10 years. lol I suspect he won't . Thank you for the prayers. Hubs and I left the hospital and went out to lunch and I can honestly say it was one of the best meals in a long time. I guess being hungry really makes food taste good.

Being asked to return in 7 to 10 yeas is excellent news because it denotes confidence and satisfaction on behalf of the doctor.

Yes I agree and it will take me that long to talk myself into that prep again .

That is the usual time between colonoscopies if they find nothing wrong at least it is around here.

I had propofol when I had a colonoscopy too and will have it again next month when I have an endoscopy done. You are right, it works quickly and has little side effects. I also wish they could use that when they do surgery.

@BelleStarr I know what you mean. No drowsiness the rest of the day.

I'm glad it went well and the small polyp removed and the doctor for sure knows by the looks which is benign and which is not so no worries.

I'm glad it went well for you and you don't need to repeat for several years.

@BelleStarr That's good. I'm still waiting for the authorization from the insurance company for the medication.

Vince has found much the same as you - comes home and carries on where he left off basically so I guess he must have had the same anaesthetic. I'm glad the outcome was so good - or at least potentially so.

As it turns out not as good as I had hoped but I am confident that it will all end well.

That's great news Belle! Every time I had anesthesia for surgery, I throw it up. I might be allergic to it.

I respond similarly to every other anesthetic that I have tried this one is a real treat.
