I had a triple bypass in august of 2006. There has since been a constant numbness on the left breast close to the center of my chest. The other side is fine. Could there be something that was left in there, it does not pain.What could it be. Have not heard anyone else having this problem. I had to have a stent put in last september,because one of the same arteries was closing. Will the numbness ever go away. Because I had to have a stent put in the doctor says that I have to take the med plavix for a year and also the 81mg. of aspirin. Is this a bit much. Suppose to thin the blood,but is the aspirin not enought?, are just the plavix and not the aspirin. Help Please
Hi I am having the same problem. Just went to the cardiologist who wants to do a stress test. I had triple bypass april 2006. I am having numbness in left breast and andunder arm pit. I am afriad that a graft is clogged. How did your doctor know tha graft was clogged ?
hello puffin201, In 2008 I had some tightness in my chest, and also I was feeling very tired and weak. Doctor did a cardiac catheterization test and found that one of the same arteries had clogged again. That's when I had the stent put in. The numbness that I have has been there since I had the triple bypass done in 2006. It is very annoying. Hope this helps.
