years ago I had a spinal tap and they found blood in both viles of samples, so they took me to get a scan of my brain, in order to do that they had to go in thru my groin and run a long tube in then put some sort of ink solution in so they could read the brain scan.FYI there was local anaesthetic. It was in the neck. It did hurt but it wasn't that bad.
If they'd gone in through the groin I would have opted for the sedation.
that hurt pretty bad but the ink solution was burning my groin area and legs, felt like fire, the most pain I had had having any procedure, up until the kidney stone but it was bad, wish they had offered sedation on that one , so I don't blame you if you had asked for sedation if they said we need to go in thru the groin... Trust me, if any doctor ever tells any of you they need to go in thru the groin, say, no, yell SEDATION!
