Sharp right side groin pain 4weeks after EP Study sore to touch, no swelling, redness, lumps or bruising no answers from GP. EP was negative. Cause?

Post ep study pain: I'm assuming the pain is on the side where the vein in your leg was punctured for your study. Check if a special vein closure device was used or if there was some bleeding below the vein resulting in a big hematoma. Might consider getting an ultrasound of the site to give you an idea what is going on. ...Read more
