    I had to have a stomach and a colonoscopy done. Actually, I did not want anesthesia, because I’m always afraid that my blood pressure sags and I faint (unfortunately, has occurred more often). In the hospital, I was then but urgently advised to anesthetic: that would be no proper anesthesia and there would be no problems after the anesthesia. And because I’m currently being treated for hypertension, that would not happen. So I agreed. I would never do that again. Sure, the introduction was very simple, my cycle was downright catastrophic. I was gone within two seconds – and as dizzy as I was, I might have fainted too. Waking up was a disaster. I was so dizzy lying down that I could not even recognize the blanket correctly or focus. It was not possible to lift my head. This only improved very slowly within the next two hours. When lying down, the blood pressure was normal, standing up, he was no longer measurable. Never again, I can only say. Under normal circumstances, I have too high a blood pressure, and so on. Sorry, I can only say: Stay away from this narcosis form. Fortunately, I was in the hospital so I could lie down for a long time. Nevertheless, one could or did not want to do anything about the low blood pressure.

    Propofol for Endoscopy

    I got Propofol as a reassurance in my gastroscopy! Since I had severe anxiety because of endoscopy, the doctors gave me twice the dose! That was fatal, because I’m 1,60m small and weigh 50 kg. After waking up, I was in a kind of trance and fog for weeks. I collapsed after a few days, with respiratory depression and sleep disturbances. This drug has thrown me out of life, it took me weeks to get along and not to be afraid!

    I got propofol as a sedation in a status epilepticus. I was allergic to it with a very high fever, respiratory arrest which led to an intubation and the status read thereby also not interrupt! Consequence: 1 day in ICU, mechanically ventilated, artificially fed and bladder catheter. Other side effects after waking were / are dizziness, tiredness, gait insecurity, difficulty with speech, headache, severe joints! As sedation with propofol in a status epilepticus deffinitive not recommended!

    Propofol for Colonoscopy

    got propofol for colonoscopy, at the injection I got dizzy and then I was gone. the only negative effect was that they apparently did not give me enough; I woke up shortly before the bow mirroring, which unfortunately was not very pleasant … otherwise no side effects.

    Side effects: Dizziness

    Propofol for Surgery

    I had 2 anesthesia so far. The first without, the second with propofol. In contrast to the first one, it was NOT bad for me this time, was there in the recovery room, wide awake. After the first one I was sick for 2 days and it took me tens of hours to come to some extent. Until now, 8 hours after the op, I still have very slight dizziness. Narcosis with Propofol = highly recommended for me.

    Side effects: Dizziness
