I went to see my family doctor today for the first follow-up after my stent was inserted. I was having strange tingling sensations and pressure in the groin area. He checked it out and said I had not developed a false aneurysm, a serious condition where blood leaks from the arterial puncture and forms a hematoma. The sensations were, in his opinion, due to the femoral nerve being irritated or pressured and should go away after a while. That I can put up with. So I'm good to go and just waiting for a call to go and visit the cardiac rehabilitation clinic located in the YMCA gym..
