Unstable angina

My husband has been treated for unstable angina quite often during the past 2 years. He had 4-bypass operation done in May 2007, but more or less every 6 months he ends up in hospital after angina attacks. They implanted stents every time. Does a problem like this also affects his memory, because he is really short of memory lately and constantly tired. He is on medication for his problem, but we cannot understand why it keeps on occurring so regularly?

Dear MT
He probably has a problem with narrowing of the arteries in the heart, the stents only open the worse parts, not the whole artery. Medication will relieve the problem but it is a physical defect that is usually not something that will heal. It can be managed only. Have you discussed with the cardiologist? You need to know what to expect and how to prevent further clogging of the arteries if possible?
