    Had a stent two years ago, they are looking at going back in for another poke around.

    It's a painless procedure, I was walking out the hospital two hours later with a bag of pills, after having a sandwich and a cup of tea.

    Easier than the dentist!

    Had it done on July. What seems monumental to us, is a breeze for the surgeons. Trust their hands and eyes to be guided, and enjoy the rest and the renewal you will feel afterwards!

    Had a heart cath and two stents placed about 8 weeks ago.

    Through the wrist, and a painless procedure.

    Just follow Dr.'s orders afterwards and take all prescribed meds, and you'll

    be as cool as the other side of the pillow, :)

    Had mine done about a year ago. Went in through my ARM. Had a 80% blockage and they put a stent in. Awesome.

    Good luck on the procedure.
    All of mine have been through the groin. No problems ever.

    Best of luck. I've had a few friends go thru this and they've all come out better in the long run.

    I had one blockage of 40% which the doc says is not enough blockage to do a stent. So it's meds for me.
