angio seal...anyone else have problems lately? I read some post. I had the seal installed on noverber 11.11 It felt fine the first 15 hours. walking x the floor to get water, something Pulled in the area where it has been installed.now its constant pain limping around.very very large bruse.leg pain to top of knee, and inside of leg feels like almost have a pulled muscle but alittle different. top of right foot gets sperts of tingling and like someone put warm water over the foot its been 15 days and has not stoped pain, anyone else have any of this after getting the Seal installed and does it melt and goaway after 90 days I don't know this seems like its not right seeing the doc in the am hope he don't give me that look.
On August 5th or on so; early part of August, 2011 I was admitted to Sunrise Hospital for an angioman for right carotid antery. I could not have another emdnterecomy on carotids due to the fact that i've already had 3 carotid endaterectomies.
So they went in through groin & found the right corotid was blocked 97%. So the doctor elected to go back into the artery again & to place a stent in the artery & then sealed the would with an angio seal.
When I was released to come home, I had such an excruciating pains in my legs & head & then sores appeared on my right leg; horrible looking things -- they would open, spew out blood & close again. I went to a dermatologist; he never saw anything like this before -- gave me antibiotics but to no avail.
I went back to the Cardio Vascular surgeon on November 2011 and had him remove the Angio Seal. Some of the sores went away, 2 did not. The Angio Seal was very infected and a biopsy was done on one of the sores in my leg.I am miserable -- the pain in my leg and head is the most excrutiating I have ever had in my life.Now ,I have an appointment with a Neurological scientist clinic in June. I need help desperately I've been sick almost a year I do not know who to contact to help me.
Any ideas, please! I need help. I also have congestive heart failure and Cardio Vascular problems.
