I had general anesthesia for mine. Although I was given a choice whether on not to use it, I know how
I am in situations like that, and I didn't want to jepordize the procedure in any way. I wanted the EP to do what he needed to do, and not have to worry about how I was feeling. In my 60 years, I've been sedated many times; for things like toncils, to hernias, broken bones, and colonoscopys. I can tell you that the sedation they use today is nothing like what it was ....say 30 years ago.
