I bought a metal pill fob that holds 7 nitro pills on a chain. I cant get a straight answer on how long before I need to replace the pills ?? And for how long aftr getting a stent do I need to carry these ?

Under normal circumstances Nitro tabs should be replaced about every 3 months.

I don't have a stent but after my bypass I was told to chuck the pills as I wouldn't need them ...... and they were right.

I normally change them every 6 months and I plan to carry them, together with my 5 stents for the rest of my life.
