Hi,I'm new here. I had a pressure wire study about 3 weeks ago. Had to go in through the inside of my right wrist as pulse could not be found on the usual outside. I found the whole experience very painful and traumatic. I developed an infection in my arm, my doctor suggested this was due to extensive bruising. I'm still feeling quite unwell, even after a course of antibiotics.
