Pain in groin after Heart ablation.

It has been almost  year since  I  have had the heart ablation  performed , My question : is it normal to have  mild pain in that region  after almost a year? The pain isn’t very consentient  to just one activity . It appears it is very random.

Thanks in advance.

It would be very unlikely that this is a result of the catheter insertion.

Does it feel like nerve pain? The artery where they insert the catheters in  the groin area are right next to the femoral nerve. It is possible that they irrated or nicked the nerve. After my ablation I had some neuropathy and shooting pain in my upper thigh area. It did go away, and I was told it was the nerve being irrated. I would let your doctor know that you are still having pain in the groin area. It may turn out that it has nothing to do with the ablation, but you never know.

I checked with my doctor  he said there nothing to worry about. He didn’t go as far to say that he nicked  a nerve.  Apparently  you  where right thank you  both very much.
