Right Heart Catheterization
@ca426 Sorry to butt in here but In 96 I had my heart catherization and it was put in from my groin didn't hurt at all I wondered why they are going through the neck now . I would think that would hurt more .

Im a heart transplant and had both a few thru groin due to clot in neck and i like the fact that thru neck i get to leave right away and not spend 3-4 hours on my back. Mine were mostly heart biopsies but had a few right heart caths also usually during the biopsy. Also the pain for me was about the same like i posted below the cream helped
