What happens right after the procedure?
Many procedures that use regional anesthesia are fairly minor. After the
procedure, the person is taken to a
surgery recovery room. The individual may be able to go home a few hours
after the procedure. Someone else must drive the person home. This is because
sedatives can impair coordination and reflexes for several hours.
