Is there a possibility of staying longer?

A pain medication is given to eliminate discomfort.

Will I sleep during the procedure?
The physician will order conscious sedation medication, enabling you to sleep during the procedure.

Should I bring a change of clothes or pajamas?

May I bring relatives? May they come with me during the procedure?
