Im having an endoscopy,just need some info,Thanks.
You can read more about endoscopy here:
The quick answer though is that as soon as you wake up and feel well enough to go you leave. You will need someone to drive you home as you will still be feeling the effects of the medication. Most people go back to work the next day.

thanks stephanie for your previous answer but do you need to go in a ambulance?will there be pains etc.Habib.m
Definitely not an ambulance. You'll walk out of surgery. Your throat will be a bit sore but overall you will be sleepy and a bit weak depending on how you respond to the anesthesia. They do not put you all the way out. It's just twilight - you won't remember a thing but you are able to breathe on your own through the whole procedure.You can't drive home because you are still under the influence of the anesthesia which makes your reflexes slow and you a dangerous driver.
So how long do i need to rest (in days) will i need support walking out of surgery?
You should not need support walking out but will be groggy and may not be making the best decisions. Most people go back to work the next day. You will need to ask your doctor about how long if you do especially strenuous work but in general there are no specific precautions.
