Hello
You got stent and stopped 'CLOPIDOGREL after 90 days .
As you know that clopidogrel is anticoagulants, antiplatelets & fibrinolytics ( thrombolytis ) and advised in operated as well as non operated cases.
In your case once it has served its purposes .
Now although , you are not at any risk but in future , after 6 -12 months get in lipid profile and other relevant tests for coronary artery disease and deal accordingly.
Till continue exercises and fat free diets.
Good luck.
