    i had my fourth one on thursday and i have never felt so awful after any of them i had stents fitted through my groin and wrist and a check up one through my wrist, this time they had to go in my left wrist and as my arterys are narrow they tried 3 times to push it in and then decided to give me this stuff to widen the artery dear god they said it will tingle a bit for a few minutes holy s..t i screamed foulmouthed words so loud i begged them to get it out of me and i am no wimp i have bad angina unstable and a severe back problem so i hurt the whole way through felt the lot and i dont care what they want to do i will never ever go through that again if you are going in for one anybody get them to go in your groin as i did and had no problems apart from not being able to breathe for a few seconds and needing gtn and i feel like ringing the helpline now four days later as i feel like rubbish and have had many more attacks of angina than normal its horrid sorry but you should know what is facing you if you go into a conveyer belt hospital as i did .

    When I got home my Heart was feeling rather delicate but now it feels OK, all in all I'd say it was a success, I've got far less Angina smile GTN spray is rubbish though, wish I had that hospital strength stuff cheesygrin

    If you are having problems ring them or ring an Ambulance, they broke it so they should fix it neutral
