Answer

Answer

A family member or friend must be available to drive or accompany the patient home. The patient may have a mild sore throat, hoarseness, cough, or fever following the procedure. If, after being discharged, the patient experiences increasing chest pain or shortness of breath or coughs up more than a few tablespoons of blood, he or she should contact the physician immediately.
