Rachel's stent

"When I finally told the doctor what I was going through, she referred me to a cardiologist. All the while reassuring me that it was incredibly unlikely that a slim woman of my age would have heart disease." But Rachel's ECG stress test did suggest there was something wrong. She ended up having a stent fitted to hold open the walls of a narrowed artery. Rachel says she was terrified another artery would narrow and she might have a heart attack. Being so young and slim, people seemed to find it inconceivable that she could have a serious heart problem. She found it was very isolating.
