      A new member, @teddy, asks, “I’m going in for a stent in my left main coronary artery. Has anyone else had this? If so, what was your experience?”

      As a PH patient, I have not had this myself. But, my hubby had stents placed last year and has not had any issues. I also know a few PHriends who have had stents placed while having PH. I have noticed that they recover a tad slower but often feel the relief once these arteries are opened up, and more blood can flow.

      When are you having this stent placement, @teddy? Is there anyone here who can share their stent experiences? I would guess that increased blood flow would help offer some relief quickly.

      @teddy my dad has stents and they truly helped him. They typically only last a certain amount of years then need to be replaced. He amazed his doctors because his didn’t have to be replaced until something like 10 or 15 years later. They left the old ones in and put in 2 new stents several years ago. I’m not sure why they didn’t remove the old ones but the next time I talk to my dad I will ask him and get more information for you.
