Removing a gastric balloon involves a simple endoscopic procedure with sedation. You will be breathing on your own, but the sedation drugs will make sure you are not feeling any pain and are not aware of what is going on.
It’s important to take some steps to make sure there is no solid food present in your stomach that could lead to aspiration into your lungs at the time of removal.

. Before the gastric balloon removal procedure—generally 48 hours prior—begin taking the prescribed heartburn medication as directed by your physician. This medication is designed to help counteract any reflux or heartburn that may occur during or after your gastric balloon removal.
. For your gastroenterologist to remove the gastric balloon, there must be no solid food in your stomach. This can be achieved by refraining from solid foods for 48 hours prior to the gastric balloon removal procedure. During this time, taking small, frequent sips of low-calorie carbonated beverages, such as diet soda or sparkling water, can help settle your stomach and clean the gastric balloon of any remaining food particles.
The carbonation in the diet soda helps to clean the balloon and also move solid food out of the stomach. You should also having nothing at all to eat or drink for 12 hours prior to the procedure as you will be sedated.

Gastroenterology Associates requires that you have a ride home planned before the procedure can take place, as it is not recommended that you drive or operate heavy machinery for 8 hours following sedation.
