What to do after the Radio Frequency Ablation Procedure
- If you had sedation, then you may be drowsy and sleep. You have now had a large volume of fluid injected into the thigh. This fluid may start to sweat out. This is absolutely nothing to worry about.
- You can return to your normal activities the same day.
- You need to walk for at least 30 minutes on the day of your procedure.
- You can remove the compression bandages after 24 hours and you may take an anti-inflammatory if you have any pain.
- Avoid sitting or standing for prolonged periods.
- Strenuous actives should be avoided for a period of two weeks.
- If you need to board any aircraft, please consult with your doctor prior to making any flight reservations.
- A follow-up procedure will be conducted within 72 hours of the procedure and this will include an ultrasound of the groin area to assess for any clots.
