Will having a drug coated stent placed in an artery to your heart reduce your life span? Aproximately one year ago I had three stents inserted in two arteries to my heart. I didn t suffer a heart attack . My two arteries were 90% restricted. There is no heart damage. I read an article that said that the drug coated stents work for three years....
I am 64 year old male and have had 3 mild heart attacks and have had stents each time. The last one was a month ago. At that time the doctor said I had two more arteries that were 80% blocked and needed to be stented soon. He wants to do it next week, but for various reasons, I want to wait until the middle of April....Is okay to wait that long?
