I was put under for mine so I didn't have pain and I can't imagine having it done without being put under anesthesia. In that case no going back to work the same day of course. Didn't your doc give you any kind of instructions for this procedure? Are you sure it is an endoscopy? You really should call them and find out what the situation is.
kdmox, you will not be returning to work that day but should be able the next. You will be sedated in a sort of "twilight" and it has a mild abnesiac which will most likely prevent you from remembering any of it. After ward, they will take you for an xray and that should be it, you will go home same day if there are no complications.
Didn't you have one prior to having your band done? I did and thought it was a normal pre-op thing.
I didn't have one pre band or sleeve. I only had mine to find the problems caused by the band. I wonder why they wanted you to have it pre surgry. Also I did not have a xray after endoscopy.
I didn't have one before the band or sleeve. The only time I had an Endoscopy was to determine the problems from the band. They gave me the loopy meds a while before going in and I swear I didn't even go to sleep but as stated I don't remember the procedure. My husband did say it only took a few minutes.
