How can I detect that a merge triggered via API completed?

I do have a script that detects if a pull request exists and merges it. It then pulls the repository locally.

The problem is that the API operation completes before Bitbucket has completed the merge, so the pull does not contain the merge just done.

Waiting 30 seconds does not solve the problem reliably, and I sense that waiting any specified amount of time is a workaround rather than a good solution.

How can I know in the script that the merge completed? Can I make the API operation work synchronous and only return after it has done all work? I want to avoid having to pull the repo until I see a commit containing some text with the merge number in it.
