Hey Bill, I tried to say that we love you in a comment but it wasn't a question, so it got deleted. So I'll say it here.

My actual question: I'm one of the volunteer moderators of the official RiffTrax Twitch channel. Have you watched it much? You've joined us in chat a couple of times and it's been great to have you, but what do you think of it overall as a way to let people watch older RiffTrax together?

I love this response!

First off, RiffTrax/MST seems to attract really nice people. The work of being a moderator is overall very easy. But we've also tried to use you guys as a model of the community we want to foster; snarky, but never mean.

I've set up a couple of commands that will help promote HATE MAIL in that channel; if you need anything else, don't hesitate to reach out, either here or on Twitch.

I had a colonoscopy a few years ago, propofol was used to sedate me.

When I woke up in recovery, I felt horrible. Worst sore throat I have ever had. Couldn’t even really swallow saliva, could barely speak. I was given a note with my discharge paperwork that mentioned a possible aspiration into my lungs while I was under (I was then rushed out while still half conscious).

Ever since then I have had chronic sore throats and laryngitis after even limited amounts of speaking. I’ve gotten differing opinions from ENTs that I have seen; one said it looked like I had been intubated, another said she just saw inflammation. The GI doctor insists that even aspiration didn’t happen, much less an intubation.

I don’t even care about legal liability, I just would like to know the truth. Any guesses based on your experience?

Thank you for the reply!

The whole experience was...not a good one. A nurse (not in anesthesia at all) friend of mine says that it's unlikely that I wouldn't have been intubated, if I did aspirate (the GI doctor continued to insist that no intubation was done). Is that consistent with your knowledge?

Like I said, I don't care about any legal action at this point, I just would like to know what actually happened.
