Chest tightness even after stents
I had 4 stents placed in my heart….2 in November of 2014 and the other 2 in December. The day I left the hospital after the last 2 stents were placed, the physician’s nurse asked me how and I was feeling. I replied, “I still feel the tightness that I felt before.” She said that I would just have to get used to it because if it wasn’t better it wouldn’t get any better. Anxiety has about killed me. My doctor offered another heart cath to put my mind at ease but I bled terrible after both previous caths and didn’t want to risk another. A year later I did another stress test that showed all problems that were present before the stents were no longer there. The cardiologist feels that all is well. Has anyone else experienced this?
