Just had my first colonoscopy done. They had to give me 2 - 1/2 times the usual dose of anesthetic to put me out. I'm wondering if that is connected to why my brain won't shut down at night and let me sleep. Even on sleep medications I only manage 3 or 4 hours. Boy, talk about being sick afterwards. Just had a 36 hour nap. (yes my doc is good at his job). Nurse said they couldn't believe it, I just wouldn't go under. I was only the second person she'd seen that got sick afterwards. They wanted to admit me but the anti-vomiting injection finally kicked in. I was in recovery for almost 5 hours. I've haven't had any kind of anesthetic before - last op was tonsilectomy when I was 6 or so. Also, my breathing problem has been solved - asthma. The first dose of Advair and I've taken my first real breath in months.
