Two stents later...two daily injections that I have to give myself of blood thinners, and the most horrendous pain I've ever endured. I had no idea it would be this bad...but i know it will get better. This is a lifelong syndrome....and maybe thats what upsets me the most, but I am alive. And if it had not been fixed, who knows what may have happened. Another, second chance i am grateful for.
