Like "Angie, You are so welcome....but can i just say....I have had the cath twice now in my leg and it is not that bad at all, I felt no pain. It was for a different problem as I had to have my caroid arteries cleaned out back in 2033. You try to relax, I hear you about the stress they put us thru for thier testing. I do the same thing you are doing. The one stress test I had, i got so stressed about it my heart beat was over 100 before they started the dang test. I will not have an other one and have been asked by my dr a number of times. Lanore ;-)"
