Thankyou. Yes! I understand you recommend life long statin therapy but my question is, is it essential to stay on it simply because one has a stent? I, myself, had a triple bypass 24 years ago and have never, ever taken a statin drug. has it anything to do with the growth of tissue within the stent? Thanks
Thanks! Well, I don't take statens myself - they are too dangerous, in my opinion and in the opinion of many eminent MDs worldwide.
Its my sister-in-law who has the stent and is on statins. She wants to stop taking them because of side effects but her doctor says she can never do so. Mine is a question not aimed against any doctor but simply, does a person HAVE to remain on statins by virtue of the fact that he/she has a stent. Thanks
Thanks! Thats grand. I related your service excellent.
