Patient : Hello I have a aortic stent put in early last year,(road accident), I had a collision with a pedestrian while riding my bike (pedestrian came out of nowhere and was under the influence)in the park. I came out of it with some scratches and bruises to my knee and elbow, but I took the bulk of the impact on my shoulder and face.(i look like rocky)I'm experiencing some discomfort but nothing serious in my chest, I can breath in deeply without pain, should i have an x tray done to check or should I just continue to rest this out?
