My husband 78 years old, has 6 stents since 2004...
his medications are: 75 mg Clopidogrel, Losartan 50 mg,Atorvastatin 40 mg, Metoprolol ER 12.5 mg
His last checkup with the heart doctor was Nov 2017...blood work was good and he was feeling good.
In the last couple of weeks he has been tired, very tired...my husband is an active person for his age.
I have a call into the Knoxville Heart Group...hoping to hear from them tomorrow...
I am requesting a complete blood workup for him but I really feel he needs to be seen tomorrow.

I am 65 years old. I am very active as I play badminton 3 times a week for more then 30 years. Sometime in 2009 I had angioplasty done. Three of my arteries were blocked and the heart surgeon were successful in implanting 3 medicated heart stens. I had been taking medication since then to lower my blood cholesterol and blood thinning medicine. Since then I have been as active both in my work schedule and exercise. My question is how long will the medicated stens last? And do I get the same symptoms of impending heart attack like numbness of the left arm, sweating and fatigue, if the stens are not functioning?
