Just as a reminder, because the medications used during the procedure can make you forgetful, you should have someone with you at the healthcare facility to listen and take down any important information you will need to take home with you. This person should also drive you home.
You should not drive or operate any heavy machinery for at least 24 hours after your procedure.
Furthermore, you should avoid alcohol and any prescription sedatives for 24 hours, because the medication used in the procedure can stay in your system for up to 24 hours.
If a polyp or biopsy was done, you should not take Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Naproxen and any prescription medications that thin your blood for at least 24 hours.
