Not doing so well. 56 years old. Had a heart attack and 2 stents placed in my heart on 9/6, then had surgery on 9/25 to remove piece of angio seal that broke off in my artery in my groin. My thigh is still numb and swollen. I have a hematoma the size of a peach pit next to my groin area where surgery was performed and I'm a nervous wreck. The doctor keeps telling me to relax everything will be ok. I don't know why I don't believe it, maybe because it's swollen/tight and it hurts. The good news is that it's not infected. Please help me so I can stop worrying. I know stress is not good for healing.View Thread
