What to Expect After the Procedure
Depending on you medication condition, you may go home the same day or stay 1–2 nights after the procedure.
After the procedure you may have a sore throat and the skin around the incision on your neck will be numb. Please note, this will heal over time.
Before returning to your normal diet, you will need to eat smooth, soft foods for awhile.
Once pain medication is stopped, driving is usually permitted. This will also depend on how easily you can turn your head to check your surroundings on the road and safely merge with traffic.
