I went in for a heart cath and was released from the hospital in extreme pain. My lower right leg was cold and had no pulse. Was rushed back to hospital and rushed into emergency surgery for a blood clot that formed in the artery and the doctor told my family i could loose the leg. Was able to save my leg but now i have continuous swelling in right leg. Heart doctor can not say what happened and say he never knew i had pain and discharged. I feel hospital is negligent for sending me home home in pain. Wish i could sue
