It was very easy, no pain. I didn't feel anything. I would do it again if I had to. I was awake through it all and watched it on the monitor. I'm 66 and my results came out with no blockage. I now have peace of mind and the doctor now knows the information he wanted to know. I'm in the healing stage now and so far so good. I had a little pain and swelling for 10 days afterwards. It's been 3 weeks and I go for another appointment to get checked again. Jackie B.

only bee-sting pain at injection...procedure lasted about 20 minutes...only give Valium/Demerol combo, so was awake...sore,but little pain next day..does not require pain pills, but nice if dr will give 2 days supply just in case..need Valium or Ativan before procedure to keep anxiety low..easier than i thought!

My only complaint is that my arm is still sore 5 days post procedure. Catheter was placed in right arm artery and arm is sore all the way to my shoulder. I must say however that I'd rather have the cath in my arm than in my groin.

I had major issues....when the cath was pulled out it knicked my attery and I am still having issues. After 4 months of numbness, tingling, and loss of sensation in my right hand I am finally getting a MRI to see what damage has occurred. I would recommend looking into the DR that is doing it and see what his 'failure" rate is. I should have done a lot more homework on this before I did it. I hope that eventually I have my "forearm" back as it is my livelihood. I own my own cleaning business so you can imagine how hard these 4 mths have been. PLEASE PLEASE do research on your DR as I would want NO ONE to go through what I have.....it's a NIGHTMARE!!!!
