I was given a combination of medication (feel good drugs) that worked well at keeping me consciously sedated (happy and calm). I had Versed and
had no ill effects from the meds at all! The procedures lasted 6.5 - 7 hours each, but the time flew by (for me). Some people are awake, but I was in la-la land and enjoying a much needed rest. I did not feel the catheters at all. When I woke up, I did feel some pressue on my groin where they were closing off the catheter entry site.
