In brief: Dont worry

Sedation in general is inhibitory so although it will depend on the agent and type of sedation.
Either way, it is rare for patients i say serious things, in that if anything it just light hearted smiles. Even if anything is said, you can trust your surgeon and team to maintain a level of professionalism as they are likely experienced in sedation. If concerned bring it up with your provider perhaps.

In brief: Probably not.

Depending on the anesthetic/sedative agents used and the method of administration (iv vs.
Oral) a patient usually doesn't verbalize during a procedure. That being said, some sedative agents do minimize a persons inhibitions and they might say something that wouldn't be mentioned otherwise.

It does happen but the team is very used to it and it is not supposed to go any farther because of HIPPA. Patient confidentiality.

Usually you don't say anything serious. Mostly silly comments.

In brief: No

Under general anesthesia you will essentially be deeply asleep.
You will not do or say anything inappropriate.
