Mosby make sure you call your doctor or go back to see him if your not satisfied. You should discuss other options if your not happy. Also it would be good to think of lifestyle changes if you haven't made them already. I had my stent put in Jan 4,2005 and I changed the what I ate and started taking supplements and last year when they went in my arteries and stent was pristine according to my cardiologist. I am unable to take statins because of my stomach so I attribute my success to lifestyle change and the supplements they told me to take after my stent was put in. Take care and make sure you get the answers that you need. Barb
