My angiogram showed a 95% blockage in the right coronary

Customer Question

My angiogram showed a 95% blockage in the right coronary artery distally and where there is a splitting into 2 different arteries.. Cardiologist says it will be accessible to stent but it will take longer than usual. Do you agree? It's not until Tues PM. Can I wait? I've probably had angina for six months thinking it was musculoskeltal. NO other blockages noticed.

Is this a difficult stent to place? My last 2 stents were 7 years ago. He said I need to take 40 mg lipitor. MY PCP had me on 10 mg only.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 5 months ago.

it can be difficult, but it can be done.

increasing your lipitor can help lower your cholesterol

going on a vegan diet can also help reduce plaques in your heart arteries as well.
