Can a person with a stent drive a two-wheeler?
Q: Can a person who has a stent in his heart ride a two-wheeler (gearless vehicle)? Following surgery, when can he start riding the vehicle?
A:Most certainly a person with a stent in the heart can ride a two wheeler and can indulge in other kinds of physical activities commensurate with his age and provided those activities do not bring on chest discomfort, breathlessness or uneasiness. After bypass surgery, generally we advise a person not to drive a vehicle for about 6 weeks to allow for the breast bone to heal fully. However, a person can be driven around at any time.
