Cardiologist 's  Response
Cough can be related to heart disease if your husband had been having high BP and echocardiography has revealed diastolic dysfunction. Depression in your husband is not uncommon in patients with long standing chronic diseases and medication. Medicated stent has less chances of re occlusion in first six months. And none of the symptoms you have described point towards stent blockade. Doctors explain the difference between medicated and non medicated stent before implantation and the final decision is usually left to the patient. I do not see why you can not have other baby. Do consult your cardiologist for a re-evaluation of your husband.
