Re: is an angiogram necessary?

if they go thru the wrist its no bigger deal than a blood test, if they go thru the grion its not that big a deal either, dont get worked up and think of the pain little kids go thru with cancer etc this is nothing believe me...

Re: is an angiogram necessary?

ask them to go thru the wrist if they can. My Dr said if you dont have fat wrists they prefere to go that way. I had it thru the wrist, pc of cake

Re: is an angiogram necessary?

Humm ok will I can tell you this, if they say they want to go thru the groin, you got fat wrists , lol

My Dr said they rather do the wrist when they can, if you have normal size wrists then they should go that way.

Thumbs up Re: is an angiogram necessary?

i am home ok everyone!!!!omg... why didn't you tell me it was a breeze??? ha ha.
seriously... NO blockages.. just narrowing of some arteries. this is why i started this post way back when to begin with.."is an angiogran necessary...." but all in all, i was still scared.. they did go thru my leg, but i really didn't feel it.. i was just nervous, but they did give me something for that in the IV. i was wide awake, but very tired. it lasted just a bit over an hour...then yes.. i had to lay still. now the area is a little achy but they put something on it to actually close it??? i was too groggy to remember the name.. i'll ask him tomorrow. i got home about an hour ago, so it was a long day.. but i am glad i know there aren't any blockages, so that should ease my mind now. thank you all for the encouragement, even if i did get yelled at i couldn't or WOULDN'T have done this without you guys.the only problem i encountered afterwards was my b/p shot way up again... so now my dr changed me to lisiniprol instead of the benicar. i still have to take the atenelol, and of course the aspirin. and he is going to run liver and kidney tests next month.but this is all good news. NO BLOCKAGES !!! (just like you sagey)

Re: is an angiogram necessary?

Told ya so,,, What did they say the "narrowing" percent was ?? And what arteries ? No blockages is good news but curious about the narrowing. Which would mean plaque build up. The question is what percent ?? I was told if 60 % or under they wouldnt do a thing.

At least now you know there are none bad enought o warrant a stent/bypass so that is good. Why didnt they go thru the wrist ?? Curious about that. Oh well at least you got it done. Relax awhile then get working on your lifestyle

Glad you got it done

cvcman.. why didn't you tell me it would be a piece of cake??? just kidding. but as far as the narrowing.. all i know is that he said none of them were over 40%, but which ones??? i don't know. i will find out tho when i see him next. and as far as why not the wrist? i don't know i didn't ask . i was groggy and didn't care!! anyway.. i'm doing ok.. a little sore but very little!
and the laying down for hours??? not a problem! i slept most of it. and all day today i was exhausted. but the b/p is still giving me problems.. it shot up again to almost 200/115. so of course the dr changed my meds again. hope this one works, cause i am so tired of all of this. i don't want to do any of this anymore..and no more tests.. i'm finished.
so thank you for yelling at me..or i would have never had found out.
