cardiac stents

cardiac stents

had cardiac catheter and 2 stents placed in left aortic descending artery LAD on 1/10. I am going for another procedure to fix a blockage in the left circumflex artery . I have more energy and more breath since the LAD stents were implanted and no post op pain. I am hopeful for the same or even better results following my Circumflex stenting on 1/18. This one is more tricky because the blockage is close to the intersection with the main artery. My doctor feels very confident in his plan to do  this fix and I have a lot of confidence in his skill and experience. So wish me luck . I will post the results.

My second catheter procedure was going to be done tomorrow but has been moved ahead 1 week due to the MLKing holiday and my doctor says there is no problem with me waiting 1 more week. I am glad to have another week to recover from the first procedure but am feeling a bit put off because I was psyched for going in tomorrow.
The hospital said my cardiologist will be calling tomorrow to set up the exact time for the next catheter proceedure.
So I will keep  you posted with any news.
Thanks to all who have posted comments and answers to my questions.
