I am uncertain exactly how long it takes for cholesterol deposits to clear of your arteries. A lot of times, if a physician changes cholesterol medications or you change your diet and exercise they recommend having your lab (lipid panel (cholesterol/triglycerides)) rechecked in 3-6months, if that helps you any.
I do encourage you to ask you doctor or cardiologist. They should have a good idea of a more specific time frame.

Thanks, I appreciate your response
As far as your arteries go, there is no current treatemnt that will cause cholesterol deposits to dissolve and go away. There has been a small regression shown with aggressive statin treatment and cardio exercise, but it is very small and based on a study involving only a handful of participants.
Thanks for the information. Much appreciated
