Coronary Stents are considered acceptably safe for TENS. As per the medical details provided by you, using TENS appears safe for you. Please followup your Doctor's guidelines and ALL the guidelines in the TENS leaflet / package insert.
Contact your healthcare provider in case if you experience any discomfort.
Hope this helps
