Thanks for query,
After stenting a person can lead a normal life if he is not involved in exertion.
don't involved him self in exertion or any activity that lead to perspiration like straining while passing stool,lifting heavy weight,taking up stairs etc.
The life expectancy is good for him.
Smoking may affect it.
