After the ERCP
You will be taken back to Endoscopy recovery area or the ward where you will be monitored regularly after the procedure. Depending what treatment you have had will dictate whether you will be able to eat and drink later that day or remain fasted overnight.
If you need to fast overnight, you will remain in hospital. The ward staff or staff on the Endoscopy Unit will be able to give you some indication after your procedure whether you will need to remain in hospital. Please note some patients may be discharged late in the evening.
The endoscopy nurses or ward staff will provide you with a copy of your report and discharge advice before you leave. This will include advice about what to expect following your procedure and contact numbers if you have any problems.
