Question: Neice had an invasive endoscopic ultrasound cystgastractomy surgery procedure done today to remove fluid near her pancreas area (she has acute pancreatitis). I believe a stent was placed. The surgeon doctor said that they could not continue yet with removing the fluids because it's dangerous. Is this the case sometimes that a waiting period is needed after the surgery before continuing with removing cyst fluid?

Brief Answer:
The waiting period is needed to monitor the cyst

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

In some cases,the waiting period is needed to monitor the cyst if it is growing.
If the pseudocyst continues to grow and causes pain, surgery may be needed to drain it.
The goal of the surgery is to create a connection between the cyst and the stomach.
The cyst is then drained through the stomach.

Hope my answer was helpful.

Kind regards!
