It is a straight forward procedure and very safe. The only pain which your father in law will experience is when the local anaesthetic is being injected, after that he should not feel anything.
Depending on how they seal up the puncture wound will depend on how long he will stay in hospital - but he should be home by the following day at the latest.
Most of the patients ive spoken to after the procedure have said it was over very quickly and were suprised at how comfortable it was.

I have undergone several stress tests and echocardiograms plus a cardiolite stress test in the past couple of months with nothing to eventful showing up. During my last stress test performed by my cardiologist I mentioned that sometimes when I do the treadmill test I get a mild discomfort in my upper back. Based on this my cardiologist wants me to have CT angiogram done. I am very very nervous about this test due to the high radiation. Is this necessary and is there anything else?
I am from Bangladesh. I am in a private service in Dhaka. I felt chest pain for last six months and so i we went a cardiologist in SQUARE Hospital in Dhaka. He gave me some test like ECG,ECHO, blood tests and ETT. All other tests except ETT was found normal. I was for 9 and half minutes in excercise tolerance test. I didn t feel bad. But the cardiologist told me that he found some significant changes in third stage of test. So, he stopped the test and he advised me to do an angiography for better result. He suspected that there may be block. Then I went to another cardiologist in National Heart foundation of Bangladesh and he advised me not to do angiography right now. He prescribed me some medicines like Anclog plus, Anzitor, Ecospirin and advised me to walk an hour every day. By this time I talked to my sister in USA. She consulted with a doctor there and the doctor said if ETT test is positive it will be better to do an angiography. Then I went to another cardiologist for third opinion. I went to Prof. Dr. Afzalur Rahman, MD (Card), Phd (card), FACC (USA), FRCP (Edin), FRCP (Glasgow), Fellow in Intervention cardiology (France & USA), awarded CRT2009. He also checked my tests and advised me to do an angiography as soon as possible to be risk free and to know the actual result. So I did Coronary angiography under him at Square hospital. My CAG report was normal. There was no blockage in heart as per result from CAG. He advised me to feel free and stopped all medicines. He told me that the cause of the pain might be from muscle strain or Gas. Still I feel chest pain and it seemed at middle of chest and sometimes from middle to left or right. I feel tired sometimes. I have my CAG report and CD with me. I need your suggestions and advice
Hi. I had an angiogram 10 days ago and developed a haematoma in my groin. The bruising there has started to fade but I also have heavy bruising and some pain around my penis and scrotum. This hasn't faded at all and, if anything, has got worse. Is this normal?
