Q

Can I have a colonoscopy with light sedation

I am about to have a colonoscopy, however I want to be awake and be able to talk to my Dr. I was told that there are meds out there that will let a person be awake, and while the colonoscopy is being done you will not feel anything. Please advise

It is possible to undergo colonoscopy with minimal, light or even no sedation; however, there may be more discomfort experienced during the procedure.? You will want a talented endoscopist to perform your exam should you choose to do it without sedation to minimize this.
