Anything from Rs. 1 Lakh onwards. You need to stay for atleast 2-3 days in the hospital and one can lead a normal life afterwards. However, one has to be in touch with the cardiologist for medications and follow up. There are chances that plaque/fat can get deposited on the stent and for that one needs follow up visits.

Hi! I had an angiogram last week and they found a 60% blockage along with a tear on the inside of the main artery of my heart. They called it borderline and decided not to do an angioplasty. When I asked them about it after, they said it would get worse and the only way I will know is when symptoms get worse. I already have shortness of breath, cough, and chest pain when I go upstairs or lie down. I don t understand why they just didn t stent it if it was borderline. I also have Fibromyalgia/CFS , severe OA and Sjogren s syndrome. I am on lots of meds including Crestor and aspirin. The problem is now that I am stressed out over this knowing I have a ticking time bomb in my chest. I have not been sleeping well. I don t know how to forget about what is going on when I also have so much more to worry about.

My husband has had an angioplasty about one and half year back. He had only 60% block. He used to have leg pains befor e the angio plasty and it still persists. My questions are: (1)Regarding the life of a stent. How long a stent lasts?- my husband is only 55yeras; does a stent lasts in good condition atleast 25 years. What are the status of the people (and the stent)who underwent stent placements in 1986-90. (2) In my husband s case: As the leg pain still continues was th epain due to any other reason. - some thing to do with nervous system. He has from childhood - hand shakes when he holds straight like a glass of water.

My 57 year old cousin was admitted to the hospital last week with congestive heart failure and was told only 20 percent of his heart was functioning. Turns out he has all kinds of blockages all over his body. They had to put in four stents including one in the coronary artery before they could do bypass surgery today. He needs three bypasses but they were only able to do two. Before surgery, he was told that they wanted to do more stents this week as soon as he recovered from the bypass surgery. What kind of prognosis do you think my cousin has?
