The problem is that my hands go black when I work with them. Usually the doctors have told me that the reason is because of a problem in the ribs which puts pressure on my artery and stops blood circulation. They have suggested an angiography and they have said that it might be needed to put a spring in my artery so that it help blood circulation. They have also said that it might be decided while doing the angio that instead a bone surgery might be required to remove the pressure. I would like to know if any of these solutions has any risk and what if none of them is taken and I just try to live with the current situation.
