Hi all I am normally over in crohns, but have recently had a positive stress test and am going in for a cardiac cath next Tuesday ...can you tell me what to expect?... is a two hour ride home going to be possible? how uncomfortable am I going to be? Really worried about pain during procedure (my first colonscopy I came up out of sedation and grabbed the doc by the neck and told him to stop because it hurt so bad...)

I just got out of the ICU. Cath is fine, but found out have inflammation of heart this week. Well at least I know what was causing the chest pain.
