Smoked for 35 yrs. stopped in 2007...Bad genes also...look good on outside but not so good on inside......life goes on....
New to the group. Female of 49. I had a cerebral aneurism stent put in place in August 2015. I have been on Plavix since then. I gained 10 pounds and I am trying to stop the gain. I have been having a mild headache right where the stent is. We did a bunch of tests but everything came back normal. Some bruising. And I am extremely tired during that time of the month as I lose an incredible amount of blood every time. I am joining this group to see how others are doing and to see if some of you go through the same than me. Otherwise I can't complain about Plavix. It is doing what it is supposed to do. hooray for modern medicine.
