i have had angioplasty done on my left groin area, with 80% blockage. i still have weakness in my left leg. My doctor wants to repeat it in my right leg. Is this advisable?

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your posting to our community.

Unfortunately, I cannot advise you on this. This is something you need to discuss with your doctor who knows your health history and specific condition.
