1 stent in 2011 LAD 95% blocked placed via femoral artery. Placed on Effient and 81 aspirin. If I recall correctly, no riding for two or three weeks due to femoral artery heal time. Returned to all normal activity. I do some gym time, home weights, tried yoga (discovered I’m painfully inflexible) , rollerblade 8 to 12 miles when weather permits. Teach MSF classes that can require 5 to 8 miles of walking. I was only on Effient for 6 months. Had a follow up Cath through the wrist this past October. All clear!!! However this time it was through the right wrist. I thought I was following the instructions, carrying nothing heavier than a half gallon of milk for two weeks. Wrist problems persisted and still have some. But doc says it from ulnar nerve and not my wrist. Thanks for that article. I’ve recently decided to up my seriousness about reducing salt, sugar and add more daily activity. That article is a good nudge. To the OP good luck with your recovery.
