    How do you know its 65% blocked???

    Did you have an angiogram done???

     

    I thought they could only find out a percent with an angiogram, and during the angiogram they could put the stent in right away while they are already in there. ???   The doctors doing this angiogram should have discused this with you before and during the angiogram and gave you advise on what to do.(it's painless)

     

    I think I would have done it, as any percent of blockage will speed up a complete blockage and cause a heart attack.

    A heart attack is painful, and if you make it to a hospital open heart surgery is even more painful.
