Leg pain after angiogram

I had an angiogram on 12/27/12. Since having my leg is hurting in the thigh area and in the groan area. Put ice on groan area and heating pad on thigh. Called hospital where procedure was done, said this is normal. When I walk I am limping. Really painful. IS THIS NORMAL. this is my first angiogram. Worried about clotting in the leg.

After five days the discomfort usually starts to diminish. However, it could be that the angioseal is compressing your nerve which runs right under the artery. The angioseal slowly dissolves over a period of 90 days, but in a few more days the pressure should be relieved from the nerve. If it continues after that time, there is a possibility that the cardiologist has accidentally damaged the nerve when making the incision. If this has happened, it will take a while longer to recover.

Grammy5680, I feel your pain.  My cerebral angiogram was May 16, 2013, and I am still dealing with horrible pain in my right leg and groin, which wakes me up at night.  In June, my Neurologist performed an ultrasound and discovered a pseudo-aneurysm and then had to perform an ultrasound guided compression to 'irradiate' it (make it stop).  Three months later I remain in great pain.  This afternoon, I went to a Vascular specialist who performed another ultrasound.  The pseudo-aneurysm is gone but now I need a CT scan because there is suspected nerve damage that travels down my leg, and a hematoma at the site which is causing pain.

I suggest you find a doctor who will perform an ultrasound to confirm whether or not there is an aneurysm at the site as your issues are identical to mine.  Good luck!
