Pain in groin, pelvis. Gall bladder removed. Post operation pain in toes. How to over come all this?

I had a heart cath in June. I had pain in groin area, above my pelvis and down my right leg after procedure. I then had my gall bladder removed almost four weeks ago. I am slowly recovering from this procedure. i have experienced pain in both toes while sleeping after theses procedures. I am 48 yo male who was very healthy and active to this point. I have always handled pain well but feel like a wimp and need to have answers as doctors look at me like I m crazy. I m not but just want my life back. .

Hi Jerely,
Welcome to heathcare Magic!
A slight pain discomfort and tightness is felt in many patients after the catheterisation.
Patient in an impression not to strain the procedure site does not bear weight for days and does mobilise freely.
Due to faulty moving habit it strains the local muscles and it feels more sick.
The solution is to bear equal weight and bear the slight discomfort and continue to move around.
You can take OTC Painkillers like Ultracet 8hourly.
Think that the procedure site normal now and not vulnerable.
Some pain and numbness can remain for sometime but will resolve as a rule.
Wish you a great health!
