Hi Vinny - I've missed you!
Though, I'm sure sorry to hear you are having problems?!
Re the tear in the artery...from what I've read, it generally produces no problems. Are you on Aspirin and Plavix? That's usually the general med.'s after a stent. If that is the case, you should be just fine and it will heal from the scarring. You have layers in your artery, so I would guess they just had a tear in one of the layers? My advice to you would be to discuss this with your Cardio Dr., Vinny, especially if you are having any problems - just to make sure all is well. Just give them a call...
Please let me know what happens?!
Hugs from Texas! Teri
