I recently had a colonoscopy with demerol and versed. I totally expected to have the usual " you won't remember anything" result,but that was not the case. I was in so much agonizing pain-- I felt 75% of everything that was going on. Every time he made a turn in my colon I felt it. I remember excessively moaning, crying out, writhing in pain. I am in such shock and disbelief that the doctor did not give me anymore pain medicine. Later, after talking to one of the nurses, I was told that my doc is stubborn and doesn't like to give extra pain medicine, also not a very compassionate person. I only wish he could experience what I went through. I wrote him a note explaining my experience. If he is any kind of a man he'll have the diginity to respond.

If your doctor knows the anesthesiologist gives less medication during a procedure than you need, I'd ask your doctor to get another anesthesiologist for your procedures. I make sure the doctor and surgery center or hospital are aware of your experience, and have it noted in your hospital and doctor's records that you do not consent to that anesthesiologist being anywhere near your medical care.

Unfortunately, many colonoscopies are performed by gastroenterologists without anesthesiologists being involved at all. And that is where the trouble lies because if you are given just Versed you do run the risk of knowing what is going on and feeling tremendous pain. Even teaching hospitals permit gastroenterologists to do these one man shows. So ask way beforehand just who is handling the anesthesia and what medication(s) are going to be used. Then do some research and get back to the doctor if you aren't pleased with what you have read.
