Urgent Care!: Your foot should be warm after a heart cath...you must get seen by a provider today to check the pulses in your foot! A lack of blood flow means a lack of oxygen in the foot will cause coolness, change in color, a tight feeling, pain and without treatment... eventually, loss of limb. Make sure you have it looked at immediately!
