Hello and welcome,

I appreciate your concern,

You did not mention the type of stent used,whether drug coated or metallic,when was it inserted and where exactly.
But the symptoms you mentioned are not related to cardiac stents generally.
The common side effects of cardiac stents are,

Allergic reaction to medication,metals or dyes used in the procedure,
Complete blockage of the vessel,
Infection of the vessel,
Breathing difficulties due to anesthesia mostly.
A heart attack.

I hope this is helpful,
Wishing you the best of health.
