What happens right after the procedure?
After the surgery, the person will be taken to the surgery recovery room. There the person is watched closely for a short time. Vital signs, blood pressure, pulse, and breathing are checked frequently. A person will be monitored closely for bleeding as well. Intravenous (IV) fluids are given until the person is able to drink liquids by mouth. There is usually mild discomfort. This can be relieved by medication injected into the IV. If there is no excessive bleeding and the person is able to drink liquids, they are usually discharged home the same day.
