I have a serious and it's been bugging me: I'd due for a 10

Resolved Question:

I have a serious and it's been bugging me: I'd due for a 10 year colonoscopy in 10 days. My GI guy has ordered propopfol and I'm allergic to versed. It's not secret versed deserves the bad press it's been getting. My doc has no problem with me writing across the consent form - NO VERSED - I VOMIT! - no premedication! I'm not being smart, but what on earth will the nurses do in endoscopy when they can't shove versed in you in the holding area? As a volunteer in this hospital, endoscopy nurses here work from rote. Do I smile, pretend, I'm stupid, what? I really dont' know how to play this. Thank you very much

I see you're still concerned about this. I really think nurses have to be given more credit. If a medicine makes you sick they should have no problem not giving it to you especially if your doctor agrees. Maybe you can request that a nurse to answer this post. There are some very good ones on this site.
