Stent Question

Is there a maximum number of stents that can or should be used?

Thanks for your response..at least it gives me an idea. I am a 58 year old female who had 3 stents placed Jan 30 and 4 stents placed Feb.1 - they told me that, thanks to my dad's side of the family who all passed early with heart disease/hardening of the arteries, and my careless lifestyle, I have very advanced/progressive disease. 3 in the RCA , 3 in the LAD and 1 in the Cicumflex (?).

I don't see my cardiologist until 3/8 and, of course, I have tons of questions that I'd like to have input into before i go ... for instance, if the heart area is that bad, what do the rest of my "veins" "arteries" "whatevers" look like? Could that be the reason I have "rubber band" legs and why I'm struggling so hard at work sometimes? Any input you have will be appreciated.....
