Groin Pain

Having severe groin pain at the site of Micra insertion a year later, no sign of infection etc. Combined with some wierd right leg numbness and nerve pain over hip area. Not sure if related but wondering if anyone has felt anything similar re: groin pain after so much time. Going for an ultrasound and Cat scan to try and figure out- pain comes in hip and leg when laying down and groin pain is fairly constant.

Selwyn, I really don't understand your response.  Care to elaborate?

Selwyn, I agree with AgentX86 on this one.  Can't understand your hostile and intolerant response.  I have always read your contributions with great interest and respect and will continue to do so but I fail to understand your response here.  Perhaps the isolation is finally getting to you ?  I believe an apology might be in order here to Denial Queen.

Denial Queen, after a procedure in 2017 where catheters were fed into my right femoral artery (groin area) to carry out an angiogram to look at my coronary arteries, i developed a pseudo aneurysm. I had horrific bruising.   No intervention was finally deemed necessary but I had to stay in hospital for several days while tests were carried out.  I did have considerable nerve like pain in the area, extending down my right leg for several years and still get intermittent attacks after all this time.  Catheter related vascular trauma is common with heart procedures. There were many women in my ward who said they did not want another procedure because of the amount of pain/discomfort it caused. 

I do hope you will get some relief from your pain soon and that a scan will rule out any serious trauma requiring intervention.

I attach a link

that might be helpful Denial Queen.  It does mention about venous access complications are likely to be compounded in the Micra system due to the large diameter of the introducer sheath.

It might be helpful if you update your Bio to record that you have the Micra  system implant

Thank you Agent X86 and Gemita for coming to my rescue! Your posts contained real information that I could use. Gemita, thanks for the reminder to update my profile, done!

For Selwyn- I identified my pacemaker in the first line of my post- your words were hurtful and certainly not helpful-currently waiting for ultrasound today to rule out aortic hemmorhage. Perhaps you should have a conversation with Mr. Google re: Micra - hope your day is better than mine.

Sorry for any offence over my posting, which I have withdrawn. My mistake. I thought you were posting about a micra mesh implant for hernia surgery! 

Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

Humble apologies.
