Soreness in area from heart cath performed 2 years ago

I have been having soreness in the area where they performed my heart cath 2 years ago. It's not sore to the touch, but when I bring leg up, cough, laugh hard  or anything that might put internal pressure on the area, I feel it.

This pain has come up within the last 4-6 months. It's not excruciating pain, but it hurts nonetheless.

Anyone else experience this?

Ask your cardiologist. A nerve may have been damaged. Scar tissue may have developed. Ask about other possibilities.........
