Positive Egg Allergy, Can propofol be used

When i was in my 20s i tested positive for an egg allergy. However, i do eat eggs. Occasionally it upsets my stomach, but never a reaction.  The first time i had an endoscopy they used an alternative to propofol bc i told them of the positive egg allergy test.  I had a bad reaction and was sick afterwards.  The 2nd endoscopy i explained to the doctors that i eat eggs and i am fine. They used propofol and i was ok.  I am having a colonoscopy and worried again, is it ok to have propofol administered even though i did once have a positive allergy skin test to eggs. This is making me worry for something that i know needs to be done.
