- Headache after propofol
Was given Propofol while having Colonoscopy and Endoscopy. Severe headache in evening and following day.
- Profolol side effects-will not use again
It is slightly more than 24 hours since profolol alone was given to me for a colonoscopy and endoscopy. I woke up quickly but very sleepy and tired. Forced to get in wheelchair and leave asap. Slept when I got home all night. The next day was very disoriented, lightheaded when I sat up or got up and unable to walk without feeling so dizzy and unable to walk straight that I was fearful I would fall without assistance. Halo affect in front of my eyes and unable physically to do anything. Just wanted to sleep and lie down. Not depressed but my body just did not want to function and could not function when I stood up. Very scary. Hoping will be gone after 48 hours.
- Propfol hallucinations (1 response)
horrible, extensive hallcinations during propofol-induced coma and for 2 weeks afterwords. Like bad LSD,
but more convincing; 100% 'real'.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
5 days ago had a colonscopy screening - they had to tube me for breathing difficulties. I was sent to emergency room where I was given steriod breathing treatments. An exray determined lots of congestion in upper lobes. After 24 hours was sent home. Breathing difficulty has cleared up, but I cannot talk - only whisper.
KCurl on Dec, 20, 2014:
I am 72 year old female. Had colonoscopy a little over a month ago. Woke up with extreme hoarseness, can barely talk above a whisper. No endoscopy, only colonoscopy. Was this caused by Propofol? I wasn't hoarse when I went in to have the procedure; had no cold, allergies or bronchitis. Doctor is baffled. Can I expect recovery or is this permanent?
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I had a knee operation and was told i will be injected by the michael jackson shooter, i am 21 years old and was vomitting after the operation. I am constipated and has a sore stomach.
