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?
