With a heart stent, can I play contact sports?

As someone with a heart stent, I've been wondering if it's safe for me to play contact sports. After doing some research, I found out that it's generally not recommended, as contact sports can put excessive stress on the stent and increase the risk of complications. However, it's important to consult with my doctor to discuss my specific situation and determine what level of activity is safe for me. In the meantime, I can still engage in non-contact sports and other forms of exercise to maintain a healthy lifestyle. It's essential to prioritize my heart health and not take unnecessary risks.
