Can stents be removed? I know I never deserved to have stents in my arteries. I only had slight chest pain and shortness of breathing but after they conducted the echo-doppler and threadmill tests, the egyptian doctor here in Saudia Arabia has immediately concluded and recommended to let me undergo the Angioplasty surgery and put in 3 stents in my arteries. I was not given a choice between consevative treatment and angioplasty with PCI. My question now: is it possible to remove the 25 days old stent implanted in my arteries? Thank you in advance for your prompt reply.
3 years ago they said i had a blockage they went in and lost the stint in my left main artery 5 hours later they crushed the stint and put a bigger one into the artery mind you this wasn’t even the block artery. It’s been a real nightmare.
Oh. Forgot to mention. The day before my stent, I met an 88 year old. She had 6 and had received her first at 50. I was 50 when I got mine. So looking forward to reading my 120th birthday. 🎂☺
I got a stent in October 2017. I think I ‘d be dead without it. They said my blockage was 99%. You feel excellent right after, but then you feel horrible, then once you’re used to the meds, you feel almost great. But I think even better days are coming. Just taking a while to get there. So if you got a stent and don’t feel too good. Keep exercising, eating right, and taking your meds. We’ll all get there. 😁
Before my stent I had the house on my chest too. The stent made what was left of that go away immediately.
I am 46. I had a medicated stent put in my coronary artery with 80% blockage. I was told I had 6 months to live. I had no time to think About choices. My cardiologist went thru my right arm twice and I received a blood clot from my wrist to my elbow. And now 2 years later I’m in constant chest pain. Can anyone HELP ME?
