I would be: Sharp pain in the access site can mean a problem with the artery accessed. This will get worse if he continues to lift heavy weights. He needs to be seen by the cardiologist and he will then determine if an ultrasound examination of the groin is indicated. Another issue, much less common, would be infection.

Perhaps: I would inspect the area well and contact the performing doc if any swelling occurred. I normally see my post cath patients by two weeks in the clinic for these type of situations.
