First HA had a stent inserted. 12 years later, second HA had a stent inserted. 3-1/2 years later I am going for an angio due to recurring chest pains. At the time of the 2nd stent, they reported the first stent was still clear. Good news!

During the early hours of New Years Day I experience heavy painful pressure in my chest that would not subside after a few minutes... after calling 911, I was rushed to the hospital and discovered over 95% block in my LAD and 2 stents were placed. Felt good hours after the procedure, but docs wanted to see me in two weeks to have additional stents placed in my right artery for blockage that was over 80%. I returned to have the procedure and doing well today.
