What does weakness after stent placement indicate?

I had an angiogram and a stent placed four days ago. My chest feels great, and my wound site is fine. However, I am still feeling incredibly weak, tired, and dizzy--much like I was the day of and after sedation. My husband suggests that this is because my blood pressure is too low, given the medications I am on were prescribed before the stenting. Should I be worried about this?
