    How will I feel after an angioplasty or stent procedure?

    After a stent, you should feel better. In fact, the real reason for putting in stents is to make people not have angina, not have limitations in their lifestyle. We want people to be able to get to do the work and recreational activities that they’ve always wanted to do or could do before they got sick. So the goal of the stent is to put you back to normal.
