Hi, my husband is the same. The sedation didnít work, he was fully awake and the procedure was cut short. He is now waiting to get an appointment for GA. the failed procedure was in February, it could be as late as end of September for the GA appointment. Are you in the UK? If so, you could discuss this option with the surgeon.

Sedation doesn't work for me either and I have to manage with just the throat spray. Fortunately I have had so many scopes now, I have learned to deal with it. It's never pleasant but I determine to remain calm.
Problem with general anasthaesia is it requires the presence of an anaesthetist which is why the long wait for an appointment.
