Question: I have six stents in my heart and two in my stomach. Five weeks ago, the doctor used a balloon to open an artery, which was 90 percent blocked. Within four days, my chest was hurting, and I had pain in my left arm. What should I do?

Dr. Hibberd's Answer:
You need to go back to your doctor as soon as possible. He will review your case in detail once again and consider what options are available to make your symptoms go away.
