I had a similar event this past year. 99% blockage of my widow maker. I had 1 stent.
You should be checking you BP regularly. Blood work is usually only done once or twice after starting meds to check platelets and liver function.
My cardiologist put me on a lot more meds then yours did.
Brilinta 90mg (blood thinner)
Metoprolol succ ER 100mg
isosorbide ER 30mg
I’m 38 and still having issues myself. Just figured I would share what I know. Best of luck.
