Is it common to have chest pain after a stent placement? What causes this and do most patients use nitro (under the tongue).
3 Dec 2012
I suggest you talk to your heart doctor. You may need nitro patches. My husband has 4 stents & still uses nitro. You really need to let your doctor know about this. Is it possible you had some damage to your heart before getting the stent due to the clogged artery? Are you on Plavix or another anticolagulant? Is the chest pain worse than before the stent? A lot of questions that only your heart doctor can answer. Please don't put this off, as you are still a prime candidate for a heart attack. Best wishes to you...

My cardiologist prescribed both low dose aspirin and clopidogel after insertion on stents in an artery. I am having chest and stomach pain.
