    I thought about the idea of no anesthesia. I'm a T3 complete but have some sensation as low at T7. I have not experienced AD in the 3 years since my SCI, *but* I do have some very, very mild urethra/urinary sphincter sensation...
    T3 complete since Sept 2015.

    Seems the only procedures that you can get a straight answer on are elective cosmetic procedures from a dermatologist and dental procedures like cleaning, xrays, crowns, fillings etc. We are covered by Medicare and don't have an additional dental insurance policy (which I understand are basically useless anyway), so it is all out of pocket, cash payments.

    Mind if I ask who you see for your procedures?

    Yeah, I’d be a little worried if I had any sensation down there. AD or no, it seems like a painful procedure if you’ve got any functioning nerves.

    Probably Versed. A great drug because you are still semi-conscious, but will wake up with no memory of the actual procedure (amnesia). Also does not depress respiration as much as Propofol.

    Conscious (also called "moderate") sedation does not prevent AD, so if you are at risk, you should have a discussion with your physician about monitoring your blood pressure and intervening to treat any AD that should occur during the procedure.
