Anyone Know Does Stent Have To Be Replaced If So How Often

I think a lot of people have theirs for years with no problems. My ex-husband has had one that works fine for 10 years but I have to have two replaced every year as they collapse and we're not sure why.

P.S. @A MyHeartDiseaseTeam Member sorry forgot to reply to some of your questions. 5 days a week exercise sure sounds good to me! My trainer said that muscles need 24 hours to recover from being worked. Are yours used to it? I do bruise easily and bleed from the aspirin. Takes a bit of pressure or time or both to stop. Also have diabetes which does not help recovery. Bruises stay on me a while.
