How did you know something was wrong? Did it get caught on a routine physical? My uncle has had stents put in and replaced before. He's plugging along yet at 84. His 2 brothers, my Dad and other uncle died young, 64 and 57 from heart issues.

Do not know about a "stint" but the stent I got in 2007 is probably the reason I am still around now. Zero complications from mine.

I got one about 4 years ago, nothing to it, in and out the same day. I think I was only allowed to lift 5 pounds or less for a couple weeks. Went to the PTA Rendezvous while restricted and when I purchased traps or anything that weighed 5 pounds or more the vendor had to carry it to my vehicle, lol. I know I was reminded by my Dr. that a gallon weighed more than 5 pounds, good he said that because I never thought about how much a gallon weighed.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

Neighbour of mine once looked me in the eye and said, " I'm getting a stent, tomorrow. " (He'd be pushing Very close to sixty, I think)

My initial thought was; 'Good grief! He must have one foot in the grave!' Then, he mentioned how he'd be home the same day, or something?! shocked

I'd clean forgotten about it since. What? Year now? But, yeah, looking back? I'd been talking of buying a $200+ pallet truck, to shift a round bale a foot or so. Five times a year? Crazy man ~ stent 'n all ~ scoffed and just carried on putting his shoulder to those bales!

They seem to work.

I worked with a guy that had 7. His cholesterol was over 800, not sure he is still with us as I haven't kept track since retirement.

I had five stents put in last December from a big abdominal aorta aneurism that started to rupture - had to have emergency surgery for it. I have to get an MRI every year now to make sure they donít shift but other than that good to go. Had to take it easy for a few months but doc says life should go on as normal - was out cutting down trees last weekend. As mentioned earlier, you should get a registration card that identifies the type stent (they have serial numbers apparently) and the docís information that placed it - keep that with you.

Had 3 stents years ago for about 2 years then had quad by pass surgery not many years after the stents. Some stents last for sometime others not so long. By pass surgery is not far down the road as my doc friend use to tell me once you require stents.

I hope all works out well for you leftlane.
