Recovery time varies by the patient. We keep all patients who have received sedation a minimum of 30 minutes after the procedure. You are not allowed to drive or do any activity that requires coordination or balance for 24 hours after the procedure. Most people are able to return to work the day after the procedure. Generally patients are allowed to resume a normal diet after their procedure; however you will be given instructions specifically written for you before you are discharged, and they will address these issues based on the specific findings of your procedure.
