It should be soft and feel like the other groin.....if you have a question please seek the opinion of your charge or supervisor...if you are a patient we cannot offer medical advice...please call your nurse or PCP
When a patient has an angio, about 8 hours post procedure, should the site feel hard or soft?
As others have said, soft, not puffy, a little tender maybe but if it is very sore, assess further for pseudoaneurysm and hematoma. Sometimes I can't feel anything but the pts severe pain on palpation has clued me in to probs. definitely look at the other groin- they should look virtually the same with the exception of the dressing and maybe a little bruising.
