Side effect?: You may want to go over his new medications. Some medications can cause runny noses. Some new class blood pressure medications like arb's can cause a runny nose. Check with your doctor about the sude effects of your new medicines.

Not related to stent: Sound like he is having allergies. Stents are stainless steel and can cause problems for nickel allergy patients, but these tend to be localized. He needs to see an allergist, maybe seasonal allergies or a new medication.
