As your child begins to wake up from the anesthesia, he/she will be taken to the Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU), where he/she will be closely observed.
You will be brought to the PACU once your child is settled in and assessed.
The injection areas are usually quite swollen and bruised. This is normal and is not cause for concern. If your child has severe swelling, he/she may be given a steroid medication, such as prednisone, to help reduce this.
The radiologist will speak to you about the results after the procedure. When your child is ready, he/she will be moved from the PACU to a patient room, where he/she will remain overnight for careful observation or may be discharged from the PACU.
