I had three stents put in back in 2010. I was only 39 years old, but with a staggering incidence of heart disease in my family. Recovery went well. I have stuck to my diet and been taking my meds. I have passed every stress test since with great results. Yet something, now three years on, seems off. I know I panic a lot and get depressed easily when it comes to how I "feel". But sensations in my chest and my physical endurance seem to suggest that I may be on the verge of needing another trip to the cath lab. How do I know? Am I being overly sensitive? Do people ever get stented once and then go on to live long lives without needing more? Every time I think something is wrong, I go to my cardiologist and he says that things look good. It is scary and quite confusing.
