    Hey guys, Think of me tomorrow, and cross your fingers... Going in to the
    hospital to get a heart stint. I know its a fairly simple procedure. I'll just be
    there over night. Just the same...I'm a little anxious. :peace!:

    I will say a prayer for your safe procedure. I had a couple of them put in.

    Good Luck! I am glad to hear your going in willingly and not as an emergency procedure.

    Don't be too worried Steve... the hubby has 10 of 'em in there. The procedure isn't bad at all if you have a good cardiologist. You'll have to stay on your back for a few hours afterwards. And you'll have some bruising around the entry site. The amount of bruising depends a LOT on how good the cardiologist is. Jeff said he always felt a lot better afterwards because of the increased blood flow.

    Good luck to you - you'll be up and running real quick after.

    Hope it goes quick for you Steve...I hate surgeries as well, no matter how minor, it has always freaked me out.

    If there's no complications there shouldn't be any reason you can't Steve. Even as bad as Jeff is, he was usually out the next day if not that evening...

    well when they put in the CATH, then they will know for sure what needs to be done. i got to the cath lab, was told i might need a stint. wellllllllll they found a "widowmaker" blockage and told me i was on my way to the O.R. while they was inside of me fixing that one........they found a 2nd blockage, the left anterior dissenting artery. so they by-passed it also. just pray its nothing more then a stint.
