After thoracentesis, you may need a chest x ray to check for any lung problems. Your blood pressure and breathing will be checked for up to a few hours to make sure you don't have complications.

Your doctor will let you know when you can return to your normal activities, such as driving, physical activity, and working.

Once at home, call your doctor right away if you have any breathing problems.
