Thanks for writing to us.
The pain you are having in your left arm might be related to a muscle pain since the cardiac causes have been ruled out. The life expectancy of a patient after angioplasty is difficult to predict as it depends on many other risk factors like associated co morbidities like hypertension, diabetes, atherosclerosis, extent of progression, etc.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
