What should I do after a venogram?

Normal activities and diet can be resumed after the venogram procedure as directed by your physician.

Drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration and to help pass the contrast dye.

Notify your physician to report any of the following:
  • fever or chills
  • increased pain, redness, swelling, or bleeding or other drainage from the injection site
Your physician may give you additional or alternate instructions after the procedure, depending on your particular situation.
