My angiogram to check on my aneurysms has been scheduled for February 18th. Of course, I’ll be nervous the day of the procedure hoping that all goes well and all looks good.
Thankfully the angiograms at Maine Med aren’t the all day events like they used to be. They have improved the tools & procedure and you no longer have to lay completely still and flat for hours and hours afterwards. There still is a significant recovery period, but nothing like it used to be.
However, I’ve had so many angiograms since 2006 that the initial puncture is quite painful due to scar tissue in those exact spots I think. I usually ask for extra meds as a result.
I have to get some labs done next week. Been there…done that!
