In 2010 I had an emergency embolization to stop/slow the bleeding on my brain before my craniotomy. The embolization and craniotomy were done by two different doctors.
Now during a recent angiogram for a blood clot in the leg, the catheter used in the 2010 embolization is still there!
My regular doctor and I was never informed about the catheter being left in my body.
Does anybody still have their catheter from their embolization in? Is this a normal practice?
