Hi everyone, having my first angioplasty/ angiogram on Friday the 20th. Not sure what to expect. My cardiac surgeon has said it’s more of a precautionary thing to make sure there are no surprises when they open me up for avr. I’m still very anxious and worried they will find a clogged artery. I pray not and have no such symptoms. This whole thing is a very scary process . Anyone on here ever had one of these pre avr surgery ? What can I expect? Painful? Asleep? Any information about the procedure would be helpful.
