After the procedure you will be moved to a recovery room where you will be monitored closely as you recover from the anesthesia.
You will be kept here until your healthcare providers feel that you are recovering well, usually 1 to 2 hours.
Sometimes, during recovery, patients may shiver or experience nausea. Both of these symptoms can be related to anesthesia. Your healthcare providers can give you medication to help these symptoms. Warm blankets are also available to comfort you.
Following the procedure, it is common to feel some pain in your abdomen. You may also feel bloated. Pain medicine can be given should you feel any discomfort.
Remember that your healthcare providers want you to recover without any problems, so be sure to report anything that feels abnormal or "not right."
