I recall nothing from the procedure. Not even leaving the Interventional Radiology Suite and returning to my room. I remember seeing the Interventional Radiologist right before he started and then I remember being back in my room.
The experience was not like the general anesthesia used during my Hysteroscopic Myomectomy. I could feel myself fading and knew exactly when I went under. I could also feel myself coming out of it after the surgery was over.
The conscious sedation was completely different. I never felt like I was out. It was more like some sort of time/location shift. One moment, I was in the procedure room. I blinked my eyes and I was then back in my room. Really weird sensation.
So, how did I feel afterward? Ugh and Ick! Yes, there was pain. I was hooked up to one of those patient-controlled analgesia pumps (PCA) that administered morphine. I had to balance my pain relief with the nausea from the drugs and the struggle made me feel like crap.
