In this video, pancreatic disease specialists discuss the follow-up care that is required following an EUS-FNA procedure. Before being discharged home, patients will have an opportunity to meet with the physician to discuss the results of the procedure, and receive further instructions regarding medications and additional follow-up. A definitive diagnosis can take up to a week, or can be sooner depending on the circumstances. The experts also talk about some of the potential problems to look out for after an EUS-FNA, as well as the importance of calling your doctor if any troublesome complications arise.
