I had a heart cath 3 weeks ago and the doctor found some blockage. He said one view showed 50% and the other view showed 70%. He went ahead and put a stent in because we were already there.
I had gone in because I was having chest and upper torso pain and discomfort. After the EKG, stress test, CT scan, gall bladder sonogram and upper GI with negative results I talked the cardiologist into the heart cath.
He told me during the procedure and the next day that he was not sure that the stint was going to solve my problem. It has been 3 weeks and some days I still feel the discomfort or very slight pain. Sometimes it is in my chest, under my rib cage or in my shoulder blade. Some days I feel little to nothing.
Is it normal to feel some symptoms for a while after a stent?
On a side note these problems started when I put my house on the market to sale, knowing that I would have to find a rental and then start building my new house.
