Stent

Posted by jjhowe2honeybee @jjhowe2honeybee, Wed, Oct 30 9:50am

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
https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/coronary-angioplasty/about/pac-20384761
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?
