Is it common to have low energy after a stent procedure?

About 2 months ago I had 2 stents in my heart, now I have 3. But like this morning and soon after the procedure, I mowed my front yard, but my legs and energy are a little low. Is it common to have low energy after that kind of procedure?

There should be no connection between the two. You may wish to ask your doctor to check your lower extremities for the presence of peripheral vascular occlusive disease (similar blockage in arteries in the legs as to what occurs in the arteries of the heart).
