leg swelling after a heart cath & stint
I had a heart cath and stint and an Angio-Seal closure 13 days ago.  Today my entire leg is swollen.  The groin area where the AngioSeal there is about 1' long knot that has not gone away.  The groin area always feel tight especially after sitting for awhile and the getting up.  Is this a problem?

I'm not a health professional so take what I say with a grain of salt.  I've had quite a few caths, and never did I have the swelling you referred to.  One time I did have a considerable 'leak' that gave me a multi-colored leg from the groin to the knee but it wasn't swelled up, and the doc gave it considerable attention.  The swelling would worry me.  I'd sure give the doctor a call at once.

I have to agree with Flycaster305 ... I have had two and had a bad groin to knee bruise on the second one ...but no knot with leg swelling (just some swelling of the bruise).  Please call your doctor asap.

Agree three, it can be a fluid retention, which usually results in swelling (edema) in the feet and legs ...call your doctor or any doctor or nurce  available to talk to now in your aria ...also be sure dont eat any salty food ,and drink limited drink.
