Common Questions and Answers about Angiogram dressing

angiogram

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 a cardiac cath 2 days ago. The next morning I removed my dressing in the shower as instructed and felt fine, slight tenderness to the site. As I was trying to put my clothes on, I lifted my right leg and I had a "popping sensation" to my right groin that took me to the ground and I blacked out. I finally made it to the phone, called triage and they sent me to the ER.
first red flag. I became very tired; second red flag. In the dressing room I noticed edema, third and final red flag. I called the Nurse Practitioner at the cardiac clinic, she asked me to come right in. I did so, she scheduled me for a stress test the next day. I didn't do well with it and my Cardiologist took over, I was admitted in the hospital. The Angiogram revealed a surprise.

A NOVA scan last month showed reduced perfusion to the left hemisphere especially in middle cerebral artery distribution.

Tonight my heart aches and is fluttering because I didn't read the label on my salad dressing before I used it and it has msg which i know effects it and I'm tired to boot!

I had back surgery this past September. Doctor sent me to a cardiologist and I had thread mill test, EKG, and an angiogram. My doctor wanted to do the angiogram because my brother had a heart attack in his fifties. I had 60% blockage in the middle artery but he did not feel a stint was necessary because he only does stints if there is 70% blockage. Everything else was fine. I have had an MRI and blood tests which showed my thyroid medicine was to high and was cut down.
Also, now the lights from the show are too intense for me too handle, as are the bright lights around the mirrors in my dressing room. On top of it all, I've had intense anxiety and panic attacks which I've never had a problem with before. I don't necessarily think I'm just freaking out about my symptoms. I think whatever this is triggers that "fight or flight" response and thus makes panic attack onset easier.
I still have incidents even last week when I thought I ordered Ranch dressing and they brought me Thousand Island dressing and everyone at the table said I ordered Thousand Island.
