Jakesmom - i had two, in June and August. First one they put 2 stents in, second one, nothing.
IMPORTANT: A lot of doctors go through the wrist now, instead of the groin. Thats what happened with me. My understanding is that it makes the recovery much easier. I had my first angio on a Friday, and the next day, i went to see a Billy Joel Concert in Manhattan
Its really nothing. They give you some drugs to keep you relaxed, there is no pain.
