Lower Extremity Angiogram
I had a Bilateral Lower Extremity Angiogram on 12/12/14. I woke up tonight and have pain in my groin and pain in my left leg. What should I do??
Leg pain: Given the history absent more detail I'd suggest a trip to an urgent care setting or ER to assess the cause
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?
Lower left leg has a rhythmic throb after walking just two blocks. ABI and arteriovenous ultrasound normal. Mild swelling posteriorly. Get angiogram?

Hello I got my peripheral nerve damage doing an angiogram last month, but for a weem now I have being feeling a cold wet feeling going down leg?
Time: There is no treatment for nerve damage except to wait for healing which can take a long time (depending on severity, up to a year). The issue is whether there is anything else going on - generally the symptoms would be pain and swelling. If you have those and they're worse, you should be re-evaluated for an av fistula or pseudoaneurysm.
I had angiogram almost 4 weeks ago. Was ok but past two days I've been having horrible pain in groin area an in front leg also?
Vascular studies: It is not uncommon to do venous and arterial studies at the same time.
I had an angiogram done about 1 1/2 week ago. On prenolol, aspirin & lipitor (atorvastatin). I have pain & tightness on right leg. Is this normal?
Feet become cold in 15 minutes of elevation. Left foot from toes to mid leg ice cold, Right just cold. ABI normal. Polycythemia Vera. Get Angiogram?
Cold Feet: Maybe;but you need to have a decent thorough physical examination and probable further non invasive including lab testing. How high are your blood counts? Avoid exposure to triggers, eliminate "constrictors"such as garments, smoke exposure, cocaine, OTC cold remedies etc. Talk to your physician.
I have a twitch in the femoral artery area of the groin. Sometimes it shoots down my leg. Only seem to notice it when laying down. I have had a few angiograms and a star closure clip in that area. Could this be from the surgeries or something new? What do
Maybe the closure: I would call the doctor that placed the star closure device, and go in for a visit. It could be related. Also ask about checking for a hernia. Hope this helps!
I had angiogram for brain done through my groin two weeks ago. Leg and stomach have huge black bruising and stomach is very firm and painful. Normal??
No: Consistent with excessive bleeding from the site of angiocatheter entry. Call the physician's office responsible for the procedure for recommendations or head to the ER to make sure there is no nerve compression by the blood pocket. Addressing any anticoagulation medication may be necessary. Another potential negative outcome is the formation of connection between the artery and nearby vein.
After angiogram & stent I have leg swelling for 10 months. Knee pain subsided. Xray, MRI show nothing. Slight arthritis not the cause. Any suggeston?
I am 40 with unexplained lower extremity parapasesis. I cant move anything waist down. How much muscle loss/ nerve loss to expect.
Insufficient data: First of all, "paraparesis" MEANS lower extremity weakness. What does "unexplained" mean? That you can't explain it, or your doctors can't? Are you absolutely sure they didn't find a cause? Some patients just don't get it the first time around. - If the weakness is from the CNS (spinal cord), you'll get disuse atrophy. If PNS (lumbosacral plexus), you'll get neurogenic atrophy - much worse.See 2 more doctor answers

BLELDSM made simple: In sensory polyneuropathy, sensory nerve fibers that carry info about temperature, touch, pain, & position are damaged & can't transmit signals. Length-dependent means limbs furthest away are 1st to be affected, as in both lower legs. Common causes include diabetes, nutrient deficiency, connective tissues disorders, infectious diseases, or toxins. Blood tests can rule out most of these causes.
Sometimes: There are occasions where a vascular surgical bypass and fasciotomy are performed at the same time, vascular trauma, acute ischemic leg. There are occasions where bypass and fasciotomy are done separately. They are not the same procedure, so can not be used interchangeably. Fasciotomy allows the leg to swell with less risk for muscle and nerve damage, less risk for amputation. Be well.
Not a common feature: Leg pain is not a usual feature of ovarian cancer. A person with ovarian cancer may develop deep vein thrombosis in the legs and have pain, but that is not common. Unfortunately ovarian cancers do not cause specific symptoms, at least not in early stages.See 1 more doctor answer
