pain after stenting
I had a stent placement over a month ago and now I get a pain in my left shoulder blade area running around to my chest.  I sometimes have trouble taking a deep breath wether I am exercising or not. I take plavix......anyone had this and did it go away?

I developed spasms afte rmy first stent, but not the pain you stated.  Have you talked to your doctor about this? When you say you have trouble taking a deep breath do you mean when you have the pain or just in general?  If breathing makes this worse it may not be cardiac. Talk to your doctor. Ally

Can you just clarify something for me please. Have you just started to get this pain? or did it start happening right at the time you was stented?

Hi, thanks for the comments guys,.....after checking with my cardiologist  about my shoulder blade and chest pain, I was given a clean bill of health.  Stint is ok, pain turned out to be a pulled muscle (from golfing and bicycling).  I was really worried but it turned out ok. My doctor said he knew it wasn't the stint because they usually don't have trouble with a stent for at least 4 months.....ha ha...( he is quite a joker, but a good doctor)....thanks
