This is my first post here so please excuse me if I do not quite have the hang of this and should have posted somewhere else. Just tell me and I respond accordingly.
My question is simple. How many stents can you safely have ? I have had 2 heart attacks, the first one in 2004 and I had angioplasty with stenting and got 4 stents with another 3 being added within the first year when the results were questionable. The second attack was then in 2007 when I got another 3 in the same artery and 1 in a different artery. So with 11 stents in 2 arteries at the ripe old age of 58, I am fit and excercise 5 days a week and actually feel quite good, but whenever I tell people I have 11 stents, they always say they have never heard of that and look very suspect at me as if I am going to drop down dead in front of them.
Anyone else ever heard of this many or do you have more ? Please respond.
