Venogram Question

Postby CureOrBust » Tue Sep 07, 2010 4:46 am

I had a procedure performed a few weeks ago now. One thing that has been slightly niggling at me, is that during the procedure (when I am guessing the images were taken with the fluoroscope), I was told to "don't move, don't breath, don't swallow". Although its not exactly a valsalva manoeuvre, I wonder if holding your breath could actual change the results of the images?

blossom,
You do have a way with words that makes me laugh, or makes me cry, or makes me laugh and cry at the same time. Keep posting, pretty lady.

All I had was a local at the entry point. However, I was damn cold!
