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.

I went through a kidney infection (caused by a blocked kidney stone) and then septic shock. I am recovering nicely at home. I was very lucky. For about 3 weeks now I have some numbness in my left butt check and depending on how I sit my tailbone (coccyx) is sore. i asked the urologist if putting a stent between my kidney and bladder would cause this and he said no. Since I was in bed for quite a few days he said it might be the way I was sleeping. The stent was removed about 2 weeks ago but the numbness remains and also the sore tailbone. I am returning to work after being off work for 8 weeks and would like for this to get better. Any ideas on what would cause this as I can only see my specialist in a few weeks.
