Patient :I recently went in for an angiogram and after the procedure was over. On my way home about 3hours or so after the procedure. I started to experience severe stomach pains after I went to E.R. after they did some testing they diagnosed me with an infection in the colon (colitis). I was hospitalized for 3 days. Have you ever heard of this happening after an angiogram? What could have caused this to happen? I have never had an digestive issues before this. What kind of complications could have happened ? If it was an allergic reaction I need to know this was my first angiogram. Can't seem to get any answers from my Dr. Can you please help me if you can! Thanks !
