I suffer from multiple gi disorders, some of which are rare. How can we endure a scope going through a bleeding and inflamed tissue with the equivalent of tylenol and someone to hold my hand?

It used to be the norm to sedate, and I trust it would be painful?!

I'm signing because, I had a colonoscopy without sedation and I wouldn't wish anyone to go through that! It had to be one of the most painful moments in my life.

Im signing because it is in the best interest of the patient to be sedated during such a procedure due to the different levels of pain experienced by different medical conditions. It would be inhumane not to sedate.
