Common Questions and Answers about Angiogram bruising

angiogram

Has anyone had an angiogram with the catheter inserted in arm or neck instead of the groin? I don't think I could take the groin without serious nerve spasms.
I had an angiogram about 2 weeks ago. Still getting what seems like new bruising. Is this normal? Not alot of pain, not large areas of bruising. Some leg pain on the inner thigh. Thank you.
Three weeks ago, I fractured my shoulder in three places. I have a lot of bruising. Today, however, I felt more pain in the inside of my elbow and noticed a very large, dark bruise that was not there before. Is this of any significance or just part of the whole injury?
I had an angiogram a week ago and they used a collagen plug to seal the femal artery. I know people that have had angiograms and they had no pain. After a week, I am still experiencing pain in the inject area. Is this normal?
Hi I am a 51 year old female who 2 weeks ago underwent an angiogram, after a heart attack, and had a stent put in place. 24 hours later I coughed and felt a 'pop' in my groin. My thigh started to swell & pressure was applied to stem the flow. I have extensive bruising and as it is starting to heal, it is very itchy. Is this normal & what can I use to relieve the itch.
Hi, so I had an angiogram and a stent put in about a week ago, and I'm still having pain in my groin area. It feels like it's really tight. I can't properly stand or walk due to this. They had me rest for 6 hours laid down flat then sent me home the next day. The first two days it wasn't that bad. The pain increased on the third day but has gone down since. There is no swelling or bruising. Should I contact my doctor at this point?
Hi Thanks for writing to the forum! I understand the sarcoma and subsequent surgery was done on upper limb or arm. Bruising of legs can be due to deep vein thrombosis of the deep veins of the leg or maybe valvular dysfunction of the deep veins of the legs. This can be diagnosed by color Doppler or by angiogram of the leg veins. This can be due to unaccustomed exercise. Another possibility is an allergic reaction to something like a plant, grass some insect etc.
When the lump begins to form underneath the skin the breast area just above may become red (about half dollar size) or you may start to notice a blueish colored bruise forming. The lumps and bruising are noticed in both breasts. The pain has been so severe that she has missed several days of school due to the inability to put a bra on. She was also given vicodin for the pain, which did not help. She has not had any trauma to them and does not participate in PE or sports at this time.
You need to consult a vascular specialist to rule out deep vein thrombosis and lymphangitis or inflammation of lymphatics or phlebitis or inflammation of veins. A color dopplar or duplex ultrasound or an angiogram may be required. The other possibility is a pinched nerve in lower back. This can be diagnosed by an electrical conductivity test and MRI of lower spine. But since there is a history of infection, consult a vascular specialist first. Take care!
I had an angiogram 5 days ago, the first two days I couldn't move my leg too much, the 3rd day I was much better, 4th and 5th day (today) I have quite a bit of pain in the groin area, all around the site of the angiogram, quite a bit of bruising which I was expecting, but I don't know if this is normal or if I should go see a Dr.? The pain is not there all the time only with movement, ie. walking or standing even, if I just lay down it is not painful.
My father just had a double bypass and a valve replacement 2 fridays ago and now we just noticed that his left leg has a large bruise starting at his groin to his knee. He also noticed bruising on his hip after surgery but he thought it was maybe because of the straps. Is it normal to see bruising after surgery like that?
Had an angiogram done 2 1/2 weeks ago. No stent needed, and I was released in about 2 1/2 hours. Over the following 2 - 3 days, I proceeded to become black and blue over a large portion of my lower abdomen and my penis. Over time, the bruising has dissipated, but I am now experiencing chronic discomfort in my groin and right inner thigh. Periodically, I will get a stinging pain, and I also experience a strange popping sensation in my groin area when I cough or laugh.
Luckily it always stopped before I hit my head. With regards to bruising, I think I had lots of bruising twice out of six procedures. The biggest problem I had was an ache in the inner thigh, up towards the groin, which made me walk like john wayne. Have you had the array of contraptions used on your entry site? like the sand bag and the clamp? After my initial MI, my blood was so thin they had trouble stopping the bleeding.
I had an angiogram on November 16th. The doctor didn't find anything, so no stints were put in. The procedure only lasted about 30 minutes and was back in my room. I had to lay almost flat for 2 hours then the nurse had me up and walking and then got dressed and left. I have not had any pain in the groin area, no small lump formed like I was told might happen and only a very small amount of bruising in groin area.
I had an angiogram done 6 days ago and was wondering is it normal to have severe bruising, swelling from the groin down to the and including the back of the knee, the bruising is incorporating the whole inside of the thigh and am also experiencing alot of pain in the hamstring area making it difficult to walk. Is this normal side effects after and angiogram?
claim my uncle has a pseudoaneurysm he was sent home after 7 hours at the emergency room. he has continued swelling of the right leg and increased bruising through his right leg,groin area and stomach. is this all caused from the pseudoaneurysm and is it true it will still heal itself.
Last May I had a femoral and coronary angiogram together and a very large bruising on the insertion site, (from my knee to my hip). Two weeks later I had a mild stroke. I know I am diabetic (type 2) and had been for 16 years and the angiogram was done because I had a foot ulcer that wasn't healing. But I am trying to work out if the angiogram could have caused the stroke. I can now only walk with crutches after rehab because my weakness is in my left hip and shoulder.
The venous pooling could also be making the fragile spider veins burst causing easy bruising. This can be diagnosed by color Doppler or by angiogram of the leg veins or by duplex ultrasound. High blood pressure, kidney dysfunction, diabetes and hypothyroidism should be ruled out. Birth control pill is another cause of bruising. At times adrenal gland insufficiency results in bruising and chronic fatigue syndrome and this possibility should also be explored.
This could be causing venous pooling that is making the legs feel fatigued and heavy. The venous pooling could also be making the fragile spider veins burst causing easy bruising. This could be especially true as this was an unaccustomed exercise. This can be diagnosed by color Doppler or by angiogram of the leg veins or by duplex ultrasound. High blood pressure, kidney dysfunction, diabetes and hypothyroidism should be ruled out. Birth control pill is another cause of bruising (in females).
Had a Echo, Nuclear Stress Test and Muga. Now this Friday having a angiogram. Seem to have more chest pains lately, might be nerves etc? Left arm pains, sore throat, chest discomfort. Anyway Dr. has not told me anything except ejection fraction is 30 percent and that is why we are testing. I look it up and find all kinds of different information. Desperate for more info.
Birth control pill is another cause of bruising (in females). At times adrenal gland insufficiency results in bruising and chronic fatigue syndrome and this possibility should also be explored. It could also be due to pressure urticaria. Possibility of the bruise being rashes due to contact dermatitis too should be explored. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
The latter can be diagnosed via an echocardiogram but the former usually requires a left heart catheterization or a CT angiogram of the heart.
Hi! Since you have spider veins (bruising), pain in legs and feet comes on and off I think you have deep vein thrombosis of the deep veins of the leg or maybe valvular dysfunction of the deep veins of the legs. This can be diagnosed by color Doppler or by angiogram of the leg veins or by duplex ultrasound. High blood pressure, kidney dysfunction, diabetes and hypothyroidism should be ruled out. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.
I had a heart catheterization (angiogram) done a week ago today. Everything I've read indicates a quick recovery (discharge papers included). A bit of background: they had to poke me 3 times to successfully get "in", and I learned that I'm a "bleeder" as after a few hours of lying flat, I began to bleed and "vagaled" (not a fun experience). I am an otherwise healthy 30 year old female, I run 5 days a week and bike 1 day a week.

or at least my stomach feels full all the time So, with the exception of exorcising a few days to see if things start up again, would you know how someone might check to see if the innerds are not dieing? bruising around the waste and/or stomach or something like that?
They admitted me and did an echocariogram and later, an angiogram, which showed no problems with any of the vessels. The cardiologist did say that my heart went into a spasm during the test. Needless to say, they released me this morning and prescribed lopressor, norvasc, protonix, and simvastatin and 325 mg of ecotrin a day. I need to go back to the cardiologist in two weeks, but I'm kind of clueless as to what happened with me. I'm 48 and I'm an ex-smoker.
UK Recommendations after angio..... Following your angiogram an Angio-Seal device which is made of collagen has been used to plug the puncture site in your artery. see it here http://www.sjmprofessional.com/Products/US/Hemostasis-anagement/Angio-Seal-VIP.aspx The body naturally absorbs the collagen plug in approximately 90 days, during this time carry your patient information card with you at all times. You may feel a lump in your groin or mild tenderness at this site.
The ECG this time showed some irregularities and she was asked to undergo an Angiogram. It turned out that there were clots in her Right Coronary Artery which showed a blockage. She was given "clot busters" and Heparin and was given 2 pints of blood. She was asked to undergo an Angioplasty with 2 stents to be put in but she was adamant that she did not want it as she preferred to take the route of medication and she is too weak to undergo another procedure.
