Post stent symptoms?

I just had a stent procedure and was told what to expect afterwards, but of course in the midst of it all I forgot what was said.  So, I though I would share my symptoms and see if they seem normal.  During the first 48 hours:  Slight chest pressure (no pain) that I associate with the after affects of the angina bout; slight pre-flu feeling, but with no fever; some tiredness.  I suspect these are either the result of my heart taking a beating before the procedure, or the after affects of the procedure meds (morphine, etc.) and the post procedure drugs.

Anyone have a normal recover with some symptoms during the first week?

That sounds pretty normal to me.  I know I felt pretty blah for the first few days after getting 3 stents installed.  On the brighter side, you can look forward to feeling better real soon.

Thanks.  Feeling good, but little flushes now and then, but no fever.  You comment helps.
