    You are normally offered the option of being sedated or not. I have had a few of these and one when they pushed a small tube through the stomach wall and into the pancreas behind it to drain off a large cyst. 

    The sedation doesn't really 'knock you out' it's no different to when you are having a tooth extracted - you come and go.

    Don't worry it won't kill you I am testament to that!

    sometimes people use caps because they cant see Did you get asked this before you got told off?
  • poppy123456poppy123456 Member Posts: 22,218 Disability Gamechanger
    There's ways of making the font bigger without using capitals. Using capitals does make it extremely difficult to read.

    Hello @STANDUPOAP Please can I ask why have you flagged up my post.?  My reply to the new member.

    I am one of the community champions on the forum..  We guide and help new members who join. Also police the website and make sure every one is safe. Not only that add comment to any posts that are not appropriate or not suitable to the forum. 

    Under our house rules and community guide. If you care to have a look.

    I only stated not to use capitals in the gentleman posts because it is first as I have stated shouting.  Not only that some one might respond in a negative way which has been done before to a new member.

    I have been here before with new members who have joined and suddenly find themselves at the mercy of community members pointing out his post.  The errors and mistakes. I would not consider that a telling off.

    I myself have bad eyesight and do magnify most of the forum. If I have problems.

    Apologise if I should have asked the gentleman first but I know as others stated. Those with eyesight issues do alter there screen and magnify the words.  Like myself.

    If you need any additional advice or consultation how we can help you. If you experiencing problems reading the forum.

    Please get in touch.

    Please take care.

    @thespiceman you have done nothing wrong to apologise for! You simply asked for capitals not to be used, which i can't see anything wrong in that.

    I completely agree that the font size can be changed, in fact i don't have the best eyesight myself so i enlarge the font on my computer. This way there's no need to use those capitals.

    Please continue to post and help our community because that's what we're all here for.

    Take care!

    Hello @poppy123456 Thank you for kind words.

    My concern and care is that as a new member get swamped by those in our community pointing out his error.

    Also this might stop him from posting again. I have seen this before and we all make errors and mistakes.

    We are human but there are some members who I have encountered seem to have some delight or joy in pointing out the error. Instead just being polite and kind.

    That is the way I am.  Which is appropriate worded.

    I myself had this recently missed accidently a key part of a web address . A dot . Easily done.

    Simple error. This member who sent me a spiel of unnecessary posts. On my error. 

    Hope everything is fine with you. I always be here supporting every one and all fellow community champions as I do.

    Please take care

    If you've been privately messaged unnecessary posts then please report this. This has to stop and we can't allow this person to continue with the attitude on the forum. You didn't make any error, you were polite and honest, as you always are.

    Take care.

    I've had it done with light sedation and it really wasn't that bad and I have a terrible gag reflex. You'll be ok. They are used to people who find it hard so they do it very quickly.
    Your comment reminds me of when I was in hospital once when they decided that they wanted to drain my stomach by inserting a tube up my nose and down into the stomach. I got so fed up with the nurse trying to get the tube down that I told her to give me the damn thing and I inserted it myself. After that when they wanted to change it they just handed me the new tube and a piece of sticky tape to tape it to my nose.

    Medical stories - having spent so much of my life over the past 20 odd years in hospitals up and down the country I never thought that I would see the age I am at now. Talk about veins - my right arm was completely knackered after some young doctor decided that the central line was infected. They needed to find somewhere else so as to feed me through IV. The dippy idiot decided that my right arm would do and in doing so the veins have all collapsed!

    So now it is left arm please right one is a mess.
