In brief: Pain after angioplas
Generally there is no pain after angioplasty but on occasion expansion of the balloon does cause pain due to nerves in the wall of the vessel being stretched open.
Those patients may even report the feeling of a significant bruised feeling in the muscle which tends to clear within 7-10 days.
