No: In general no. You need to contact physician who implanted stent and make them aware of this. Stents can form clots which can be life threatening. This often happens in first 6 weeks of stent implant. Stents can also form blockages but this typically happens at a later time usually in the first year. You should not miss any doses of the medications that were prescribed for stent
