Sedation

Oct 14, 2015 1:12 PM

My hubby had his colonoscopy & EGD this morning. It weren't will. He has a stricture (scar tissue, stretched with a balloon) in the esophagus and gastritis in the stomach (given prohibits rx). He's home now, sleeping.

They gave him Propofol and as he was going under he said to the nurses, "that's what killed Michael Jackson. But I'm gonna moonwalk!" 😄 Lol 🙏🌼

It's beautifully sunny here today and suppose to be high 60's/lows 40's this weakened. I can feel it in my bones & hands. This is the season where we get up and dress warmly, but mid day we change to lighter weight clothes. Wishing everyone a good day! 🙏🌼

Flappys, I know this might sound crazy, but what did they give him for the gastritis? I have it as well and they've only given me Prilosec.

Protonix, I think that's spelled right. 🙏🌼

Flappsy, in glad his tests are over and he tolerated them and is resting. That is too funny about the moon waking!!! I have gastritis as well and there is no prescription that works for me. I actually take OTC Zegered. It's the only thing that works for me and it gives me 24 hour relief.🌻🙏🏻

Hope he recovers ok FlappysLady81.
Hope you're ok as can be too.

I'll try and remember the Zegered, AlwayZ. I'm on prilosec for my GERD.
Here's doing just fine Calia, and I'm much better since the sciatica has resolved. Wishing you both, and everyone a good night's sleep! 🙏🌼
