Elevated Troponin for 3 years

Posted , 3 users are following.

I AM A 67 year old male, fairly fit, none smoker and not over weight. i had a cardiac bi pass 3 years ago in September 2017 and since my troponin has been elevated. Post by pass i got some abdo pain hospital checked my blood and found Trop level up, 2.8 (old scale). Told me i had a none stemi (heart attack) and should take it easy. But each month from November through to july abdo pain returned, each time Trop level was up. Two cardiac stents where put in December 2017 plus January 2018 but still Trop level was same. Evenually Gall bladder was removed in July 2018 and by November Trop was going down, by January 2019 Trop level was normal. Next blood test done December 2019 after some left arm pain, behold Trop level back up 65 (new scale). Another cardiac stent inserted but now over a month later Trop still elevated and nobody knows why .

Has anybody had similar experience and can cast some light what may be going on Doctors think it is probably not cardiac related but do not know what is.
