Son is 48. Had heart attack and had a stent put in 3 weeks ago. He is having short stabbing pain , not every day. Has good days and bad days. Has anyone ever experienced this sporadic shooting pains after having a stent? Is this normal?

Hello @jjhowe2honeybee and welcome to Mayo Connect!

I am sorry to hear of your son's heart attack and his problems with the stent.

Here is a Mayo Clinic website with information about cardiac stents
I'm wondering if your son reported this pain to his doctor? Did your son receive any cardiac rehab after this heart attack and stent placement?


Here is a Mayo video regarding cardiac stents,
