Coronary angioplasty and stenting

Post by ventus2cxt » Mon Feb 04, 2019 10:00 am

I recently had a coronary angioplasty and stenting done on two arteries. This was done after a stress test detected an issue. Within one hour I was on a table and getting the first angioplasty done. Blood test confirmed that I had no hearth attack. Symptoms developed during the last two months as while walking fast I would be short of breath and having pressure on my throat. Somehow I had one artery blocked at 100% and the second one at 92% interestly the hearth was still pumping normally if I was doing activities without strenuous effort. I am retired airline pilot and still maintain my Cat 3 medical to fly gliders. I reside in Mexico and am required to renew my Cat 3 medical yearly as required by TC. My question is will TC Medical will give me a hard time to regain my medical and what steps will be required to get my medical. Anybody had a similar esxerience. thank-you
