It's been 3 months and I still am having problems with my right arm. I had a wrist angiogram and an IV in that same arm. After I was released, I was back in emergency being tested for a blood clot, following my angiogram. I was told that I had no blood clot but that I had phlebitis. I was told to go home and run hot water all over my arm. The swelling was greatly reduced. The problem I am having now is grasping things and mostly strength issues due to the pain. The pain seems to worsen in the evening and while I am sleeping the pain wakes me. .
I have just started using Advil, cold packs, leg elevation and continued exercise. I will be rechecked in two weeks and am looking forward to a good scan then. .
