Recent Artery Stent

Mon Jul 14, 2014 12:22 pm

Just to let everyone know that I had a procedure four weeks ago today. I had been experiencing shortest of breath and lately a slight sensation in my upper chest.
Had an arteriogram and found a 98% blockage in my "Widow maker" artery. Installed a stent right then to correct the problem. Every thing is good now with no heart damage. After resting for a couple of weeks, I am good to go about my normal activities, such as riding horses, hauling hay, working on cubs, lifting weights at gym, etc.

Found it just in time. God is good!

No doubt there was some guidence from the MASTER above. I first went to my PCP (at this point just shortness of breadth, no chest pain), who sent me to a pulmonologist. By the time I got to him I noticed and mentioned to him about a tightness in my upper chest. He immediately sent me to a cardiologist who did an arteriogram, post haste. I do not believe that all of these chain of events was by happen chance.
