Bleeding After Angiogram
I was stabbed 5mnths ago had angiogram to stop bleeding. Still have big hematoma 5wks after and chronic nerve pain and muscle pain. What can i do?
Nerve pain: If a nerve is injured from the knife or compressed by the hematoma, then the pain can persist as the nerve regenerates. Sometimes scar tissue (neuroma) forms around the nerve and causes persistent pain. A nerve conduction study can determine the extent of the injury and if the nerve is healing or whether it is severed. See a neurologist or neurosurgeon to evaluate the extent of the injury. ...Read more
I have muscle pains in my lower extremities, arms, neck/shoulder blades. I hv cardiyopathy, diabetic and hypothyroid. I had retroperitoneal bleed after an angiogram. I am taking iron. What could cause?
