I was given propofol today.

I had a procedure today and was given Propofol. I felt fine until about three hours later and now I feel like I got the flu. I did some research and most people are ok afterwards. I didn’t really find any horror stories. Thank god!! I did read that some people get flu symptoms for a day or so. I’m gonna say this is what I have. Has anyone else had this?

 

On a positive note, I had listed allergies to Benzodiazepines. The doctor, anesthesiologists, and all the nurses asked why. I told them I am in protracted withdrawals and all of them either commented or said something about that being a real thing. That felt awesome. Maybe the medical community can change.

I had propofol for a colonoscopy a few months ago and felt horrible afterward with vomiting and terrible chills.  A nurse told me this was a know reaction to propofol and suggested I make sure to drink plenty of water. I felt better by the end of the day.  Personally, I'll risk a one time dose of benzo next time.

 

Sorry you're going through this.

Trina I fell better. It was 24 hrs of feeling like I was back in acute. But all is well now. One night of bad sleep, but last night I slept like a rock. Good luck.
