Brief Answer:
See the detailed answer below

Detailed Answer:

Having stent is not a contraindication and you can have it. Very important thing is that you must not be taking nitrates like isosorbide mononitrate or dinitrate, glyceryl trinitrate or nitroglycerin tablets which comes in brand names like monotrate, sorbitrate, nitrocontin, new gtn etc.

If you are having any of these, then don't take otherwise it may cause sudden drop in blood pressure and serious side effects. Otherwise it's safe.

On Wednesday I had a cardiac cath. They found 50% blockage in one artery and 80% in the other. Dr said 50% did not need treatment, and they could not get to the 80%. He said I need to lose weight and exercise. He started me on isosorbide mononitrate. Thats good to relieve pain, but what do we do about the blockage My wife is very concerned about what to do with the 80%. She said she is not comfortable with me driving with the 80% blockage.I think she is being paranoid.
