Cardiologist 's  Response
your symptoms of headache and blurred vision can because of an embolus to cerebral circulation , which is a complication of catheterisation in less than 0.2 % of people .
And your symptom of tar like black stool does not related to angiography. It usually indicates upper GI bleed so you consult a gastroenterologist and take advice.
