Absolutely. Heart disease and peripheral arterial disease (pad) are lifelong, chronic issues that never go away. A stent that was placed in 2001 is likely going to have some degree of narrowing or be totally blocked by now.

Tough case. Unfortunately, I don't think that anything any of us could do or say would convince him to stop. If he has been made well aware of the dangers and is choosing to continue to drink it anyways, he's pretty much setting himself up for more health problems and it's really all in his hands. I know this is frustrating for you but I don't think you'll have much luck forcing him to do anything. Read more...

Not this long. If the angioplasty and stenting were successful and it was truly a minor mi, you should have your strength back by now.

Not related to heart. Energy level, fatigue etc is not usually a symptom of a blocked heart artery. More likely related to depression or anxiety. You should notice symptoms related to activity or exertion if a heart artery is blocked. Read more...
