Hi Laurie,
 
I have a couple of questions to ask about this ANNOYING stent and thought you'd be the perfect person to help me:
 
1) Do the spasms ever go away as long as I have it in?
 
2) The more active I am the worse the spasms, is this normal?
 
3) When I get it removed, it will be in my drs office; is there a possiblity that scar tissue has grown around it from being in there these past 6 weeks and if so exactly how does the dr remove it especially if scar tissue has formed?
 
Thanks for any info that you can give me,
Judy

Ok here I go..lol  I knew you would end up asking them..lol  yeah yeah
 
1) Do the spasms ever go away as long as I have it in?
A....  My spasms NEVER left as long as the stent was in.
 
2) The more active I am the worse the spasms, is this normal?
A....  YES AND YES 
 
3) When I get it removed, it will be in my drs office; is there a possiblity that scar tissue has grown around it from being in there these past 6 weeks and if so exactly how does the dr remove it especially if scar tissue has formed?
A....  I was told scar tissue would not form in that short period of a time.  When he removes it in the office it will only take seconds to be removed when he gets ahold of it.
 
When I'm told I have to get another stent I get so upset.  I hate them.  I don't hate many things but stents make the list.  My doctor told me the reason my spasms were so bad is because the stent is a foriegn object and the body naturally wants to get rid of it.  So it responds with spasms.  Well then I guess I body also hated stents... smhair
 
I chose not to have my stents removed in the doctors office.  My last two doctors put me under a reversal of the procedure when they put it in.  I don't want to scare you but taking a stent out in an office is barbaric to me.  I have had three taken out in office.  After its removed you will have a period of time of intense spasms I would say about 6 hours.  You body is just reacting to it being removed.
 
I wish you luck.  And always feel free to post to me or email.  I'm always around most evening but last night I went to bed early....
