Re: Aspirin availability

Than you very much, J.J.B. Yes, I know about stents. My late Thai wife had a stent placed in an artery. She lasted about 1 year after it.(although I doubt it was the fault of the stent) They cannot put a stent where my blockage is situated evidently, because of a high risk of damaging the artery. I ...
