Was there a noticeable change in the way you felt following the stent. Had a heart attack 31/2 yrs. ago. Was admitted for bypass surgery. Changed their mind after finding ' natural bypass". Blood vessels grown around the blockage. Not even a stent. I'm treated with medicine. I tire easily. Things I used to do,I don't feel like I can do it now. Was wondering if maybe a stent would help. Thanks
Please don't take this as an insult to you. I was wondering if your lack of energy may be a side effect from the medicine that you are on. So many medicines can make you feel fatigued. Some medicines can also effect your sleep which would make you tired as well. I know that for me, I hesistate to go to bed because when I have nothing to distract me I tend to be acutely aware of everything that I am feeling. For instance, palpitations, a harder than normal heartbeat, shallow breathing, etc. I also suffer from anxiety/ panic attacks. When I feel something strange then my panic sets in and I start to worry that maybe I should go to the hospital. Knowing that I have heart disease it turns into a viscous cycle.
Ridding my body of the extra fluid the days I was on lasix seems to me to have produced more energy than the stents, but the stents did precede a boost. However that boost really only kicked in after I was released to do some walking, and did, several days after my discharge from the hospital (I was in the hospitals for 12 days -- of which I had NEVER heard, not for stents).
I have 3 Boston Med STENTS they have saved my life.
I thank my fantastic most knowledge Cardiac Team.
Most of all I Thank GOD for the gift of Life.
