In brief: I've sedation

Intravenous sedation effect will last depending on the agent used: Diprivan 5-10' after cessation.
Benzos and opiates can last 20-100' depending on dosage.

In brief: Usually quick

Iv sedation is typically administered such that patients recover quickly, usually in under one hour. Of course this could vary depending on the surgery, any complications, or any side effects from the anesthesia, most notably nausea and vomiting.
