After the procedure, you’ll be taken to the recovery room to be monitored. Once your blood pressure, pulse and breathing are stable and you are awake and alert, you’ll be taken to your hospital room, or you may be discharged to your home. If you are going home, someone must drive you.
You won’t be allowed to eat or drink anything until your gag reflex returns; this is to prevent you from choking. You may have a sore throat and pain for a few days when you swallow; this is normal.
You may feel gassy after the procedure.
You can go back to your normal diet and activities unless you have other instructions.
Your physician may give you other instructions depending on your situation.
