Hi, Swelling you experienced might be a sign of allergic reaction you had due to foods or dust you got in contact when on golf course. Try to avoid exposure to that place for a while and take otc anti-hystamines. If no improvement within a couple of days, should consult with your cardiologist. Wish fast recovery! Dr.Albana

Hi doctor! I had a heart cath done in my wrist on july 8th and all went well. For two days now, i am in extreme pain in my wrist area and thumb. Should i worry?
Hi, thanks for posting. I think that you suffer from a complication of the procedure, more precisely an infection of the area where the procedure is done. You need antibiotics in order to fight the infection. You should take anticoagulants based on the results of INR test(international normalized ratio).Yo should consult your cardiologist. Take care, Dr. Behar.
