I've had coronarography before 3 days, the doctors find out that I had my right coronary artery 99% blocked. I had a stent implanted - with opitmal result but I still have pain in my chest sometimes and some kind of heaviness, not all the time but one in a sudden. I want to know is that normal, shall I go in the clinic again. Are these symptom normal or dangerous. I worry about it.
It is likely that your condition now is much better than before stent-implantation. Having chest pain and heaviness sometimes and all the time is not the same. The remaining symptoms could be due to persistence of other less severe blockages in the coronary arteries that donât need stent-insertion or angioplasty for now. Chest pain can be also due to the sudden spasms of the coronary arteries. If chest pain becomes unbearable you can visit the cardiology-clinic again.
