Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

She is only 70 years young.
It ought to be safe indeed – after all, she has had the same procedure recently without a problem.

There could be more problems in not going for it – recurrent chest pain may mean thrombosis in the stent or native artery. It is mechanical obstruction and it will need mechanical relief. Should one neglect a treatable malady? The benefits far outweigh the risks.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
