For those of you who have had stents put in, does the discomfort of where it was inserted subside over time?
Mine went in through the groin and a ride on a bike with a sporty riding position really made me feel it due to being hunched over.
I also had a lot of gear on so picture the Michelin Man with clip ons and rear sets.

It will take a couple of weeks.

I've got 3 myself.

They went in through there to look in my heart. 20 years later, I don't feel anything at the site. It hurt a lot at first and I had a fear of the glue letting loose.

Yes. It will go away. I had the groin entry too. The worst part, for me, was the forced lying there for about 8 hours with a sandbag on the hole, not moving. Golly dang my back hurt. They used a plug made of seaweed. Latest remote vascular surgery tech, and they finish it off with the modern version of slapping moss on a wound.

Some stuff just works. My first aid kit now has sci-fi quick clot bandages. The original military version used shrimp shells as a base. Which is what my Sifu carried in a bottle of powder he picked up in Toronto ( China Town, great restaurants ) and wasn't allowed to be sold here.

Next I'll be taking willow extract daily.

Oh, wait. We are. ; )

I didn't try to ride right away, it was winter, so didn't have any real discomfort from it afterward, just sore for a few weeks. No kickboxing!

Expect full recovery fairly soon. It's just the temporary X-box port. ( my doc plays X-box. I asked. Don't trust a non-gamer to do stent installs. )

I was psyched for a ride the other day and we got snow.... curse Al Gore! ( he promised no more winter! )

Kidding. They glued my knees back together. Strip of superglue soaked dacron. No staples, no stitches.

Modern medicine.

That's good to know, thanks.
I'll stay away from sporty bikes for a bit - that shouldn't be too hard as they're calling for 19 degrees next week.

Wrist entry for me. They prepped the groin in case the wrist didn't work... but it did, so they didn't have to use the southern entrance.

and yes, the discomfort went away after about 10 days in my case... of course I'm not sitting on my wrist, so less sensitive would be my guess.
