Question about returning to work after thyroid needle biopsy

Posted , 4 users are following.

I know the Doctor or Person performing this procedure would be able to give me more specific information, but I'm asking the community for a general idea so I'll know how to schedule my work day.

Back in May, I had gone to the ER for a different issue.  A CT scan was taken to diagnose the issue.  From the CT scan their was an incidental finding of a nodule on my thyroid. 

It was followed up a couple weeks later with an ultrasound. 

I then got a call from my PCP's office saying they wanted to do a biopsy and scheduled me for an appointment next week.

As the title indicates, can I go back to work immediately after I'm released from the hospital?  While I wouldn't describe my work as strenuous, I am on my feet all day, walking around, and doing some bending and stooping.

What have others experiences been?

Thank you.
