golf and stent

I have a stent since 8 June, 2011. When Am I allowed to play golf ? my heart performance and physical condition are already excellent, so the question is more related to the swing, i.e. is there any negative influence resulting from the impact of the club face to the ball, or from the rotation of the body. My drive length is between 240 and 270 yards.

There is a pro golfer with two heart transplants....your doctor should be able to advise you when you can play.

Not at all. Your Stent will not be damaged in any way by swinging your clubs. Many people at the cardiac rehab I attend are playing Golf and this is encouraged because it's good exercise. It's great to know you had such good results :)
