groin pain post heart catherization

My husband had a heart catherization done on 4/9/09. He has swelling in left scrotum  with pain like he was kicked there he is also having pain in groin down his left leg.They used a star closure. He has asked the cardioligist and he said  symtoms (symptoms) are not related.  Family doctor did ultrasound and cat scan normal results.  Why the pain after so long? How long can this go on?  Is this normal?


This discussion is related to Heart Catherization.

Swelling and pain is never normal. Some people do get a hematoma after a cath but that's pretty obvious. Perhaps it's not related to the cath, just a coincidence but I do hope someone can find the cause and help your husband. I'm female but just thinking of the discomfort he's having makes me cringe. Perhaps his family doctor didn't find anything on the scans but there's got to be a reason for the swelling. I do hope you get an answer soon.
