Maybe: Propofol can get you to sleep during your procedure however it does wear off early as well. So make sure you ask what the sedation or anesthesia will do to you during the procedure. Many times they use other medications as well. I would discuss this with your doctor to have a better understanding of what you might go through.

Usually: Usually yes, it depends on the dose of propofol, generally speaking you will not rememeber the procedure with propofol.
