A Stay in the Hospital

As I was recovering from the insertion of my second stent my cardioligist came into my room to discharge me. He started talking and telling me about the medications I had to take and how I needed to start an exercise program. Then he dropped THE bomb. I needed to stop smoking or buy some more life insurance.

Looking back I cannot for the life of me figure out why 14 years ago when he put the first stent in I did not quit. I pray that I did not put off quitting too long.

Hope things are improving following the second stent. Did you manage to break the habit - hope so.


Welcome to our community barniecroft - this post is over 9 years old and no longer active and members not on the community any longer, perhaps create an introductory post sharing your story if you wish, have you stopped smoking?


Hi there

You stopped in August, you've already improved your health to what it may have been:)

When, if you do, do you go back for further tests/results following the insertion of the second stent? Hopefully they will see improved health benefits form quitting.

All the best
