Can you have a epidural exactly like you would get during labor for hysteroscopy/polypectomy?

Maybe. It might be a covered add on procedure in some health plans. You could arrange to pre-pay pay out of pocket for the anesthesiologist if not. A call to your insurance provider can provide the information on your specific plan.
