    what are the statistics for people who have had heart attacks and survived using this procedure?

  5. Ratarootus says:

    Wellwell, I had mine 8/28/08. At that time I stopped smoking and changed my diet. I take my prescriptions religiously. I had a stress test in November, and my blockage has not any worse in a year and a half. So far… good.

    Side effects include severe leg cramps (mostly at night) and after about 6 months I started noticing short term memory loss. Both of which are indicated on the web site for statin drugs.

    How did your dad’s surgery go?

  17. rcollins305 says:

    Should have read this post first – congratulations to your dad and family!

  18. 007auntbek says:

    this makes me wonder how often they move or if they can move , I have two of them and was doing fine until I watched this. now IM wondering if they can tear my artery

  19. Spectatio says:

    no the walls of the artery incorporate the stent into itself. it won’t move….it makes the artery stronger……you’re good to go.

    not to worry

  20. stormygail07 says:

    No Eric, he has 3 stents if you read my comment, I consider he has been given 5 chances to life!
    We live a very healthy life thankyou, this was a disease passed down the family, he lost his Dad at 50 and his Grandfather even younger.
    I think the reason he is so fit is because of our healthy lifestyle!!
    Diabetes???? Where you got that from????
    Eric READ the comments before commenting :O)

  21. stormygail07 says:

    That’s a risk I’m afraid. I hope you’re all coping. x

  22. stormygail07 says:

    Eric, stop being a plonker! Do you really think heart disease is just caused through fatty food? A lot is caused by inheriting it.
    We can blame it on smoking and drinking………..but each person is different!

  23. If you are looking at having multiple stents research EECP therapy, its non-invasive with incredible results. Many doctors are reluctant to trust/try anything “non-invasive” and so don’t tell patients about this new option which is FDA approved and many insurance providers cover it. Good luck to everyone going through this, pass on the info to people you know.
