have 5 stents (medicated) each time I go for my check up for the past year and a half, have had to be restented due to scarring (original procedure was for 2 stents).. is brachytherepy or anything else an option besides the obvious (bypass)...after all how many times can I keep going to be restented for same issue, when is enough , enough
My personal experience with stents is that they are a waste of time and effort. Mine (3) worked just fine for almost two months. Then we moved on to bypass. I'm guessing that they must work for some people--but not you and me.........
