I’m new here and it is my dad who had a heart attack at 52 nearly 17 years ago now and had angioplasty. My concern is do stents last forever? He Feels very tired lately and has to take a day to recover after a day out or playing golf. Up until two years ago he was still working so we used to think he was just tired due to work and he would feel the benefit of retirement. He struggles with his doctors to get appointments for check ups when his medication is up for review and blood tests, they just don’t see the urgency of making sure he gets the medication he needs continuously so he doesn’t miss a day. Should my dad be assessed more thoroughly after all this time to see if the stent is still doing it’s job? Is there anyone out there with a similar situation that can help us understand the best cause of action?
