I know this is upsetting for both you and your DH. I will keep both of you in my prayers.
My DH has had the stents done, and we have been very lucky, so far. I pray our luck continues!
My DH is a T1 Diabetic and they are prone to 'Silent' Heart Attacks. That's what happened. His BP and BGL both dropped to the low '30's. I called ambulance, fearing he was having a HA. They rushed him to the hospital. The hospital couldn't 'find' signs of a HA. After a few days, he was sent home. We contacted my DMs cardio. He ordered a stress test and from the results, sent my DH to a hospital that specializes in heart & lung.
The Interventional Cardiologist at that hospital was wonderful! He explained what he would be doing and why, etc. My DH was given med to 'relax' him, but he watched the screen as the 'cath' procedure took place. They first do a cath to see what needs to be done. Then set up next appt. to do the actual procedure.
My DH has a total of 2 stents put in. If more than 1 artery is to be done, it will be separate procedures. At least, that is how our dr did it. He felt it was safer that way.
The 'No driving' & few wks off' are very normal. He should be able to get FMLA from his work. He should get in touch w/ his HR person asap to get things prepared. It should take a lot of stress off you, as your DH will need some TLC after the procedure.
My DH had the procedures done btw 12/09 and 3/10, and he's doing well now.
Try to calm yourself. I know it's hard, been there, done that. Hopefully, in the next few months, he will start to see a big improvement and you can 'relax' a bit.
God bless. Alice.
