You will be removed from the machine, and you will be moved to recovery room for observation for 1-2 hours. Once you have been determined to be stable, all the monitoring equipment and catheters will be removed.

Your physician will let you know when you can go home, almost always the same day and when you will need to return for a follow-up visit.
When to call your doctor
