How to Manage my pain.
About This Community:

Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) (aka: Coronary Artery Disease (CAD); Atherosclerosis; is the leading cause of death worldwide. It is a disease in which a waxy substance called plaque (plak) builds up inside the coronary arteries. These arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to your heart muscle. Over time, CHD can weaken the heart muscle and lead to heart failure or irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmia). The purpose of the community is to share support and information with Coronary Heart Disease patients, their loved ones, and caregivers.

How to Manage my pain.

Dear sir
I am now 48 years old.I am suffering from heart disease since I am 27 years. At the age of 37 I have done CABG 3 i.e Lima to LAD, SVG to D1 and OM1. At the age of 46 I did my second angiogram and found SVG to D1 100% blocked and SVG to OM1 80-90% stenosis. So at the age of 47 I put two stents on OM1. but at that time also my doctor try to put 3rd stent on SVG to OM1 on tissue side but due to high risk they did not put that 3rd stent.

What I mean to say is now I have one blockage SVG to D1 100% stenosis and next blockage is on SVG to OM1 on tissue 90% stenosis. My left main artery, LAD and RCA is normal. Now my Question is that how danger my current blockages are ? how they effect to my in my daily life by that blockage ? How can I be get rid of from that blockage ?
My current  problem is when initial walking pain start on neck sholder, left back of chest pain, chest pain in middle sometime sofocation also in walking.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Angina or chest pain reflects inadequate flow through the coronary arteries, which supply the cardiac muscle Your ongoing symptoms of chest pain indicate that there is not sufficient flow through these arteries. On exercising the cardiac muscle needs increased blood flow, hence while walking you could be experiencing the pain. Also the cardiac output may be inadequate, hence the breathlessness. For relief from your symptoms the blood flow and the cardiac output need to be improved. I would suggest to limit your walking, keep high risk factors like hypertension and diabetes under control and discuss the treatment options with your doctor.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Thank you very very much for repling. I just wanna know what do you mean by "cardiac output" ? What should i need to do. my local cardiologist just giving me medicines as i provide the details of medicine . It would be great kind on to me if you define about cardiac output. also if you know about 'left artery D1 100% blockage and SVG to OM1 tissue 90% blockage', Its hazards its effects on which part of body, how danger is that blockage. Hoping you early further suggestion or directions
I am slightly confused. They used 2 stents to open the Obtuse Marginal 1 vessel, and they then thought about stenting the graft to that vessel? Why? if the OM1 was opened with stents, then I can't see why they would even consider opening the bypass graft. It doesn't really make any sense. Unless, you are meaning to say stenting the D1?
The Diagonal 1 (D1) comes from your Left anterior descending artery (LAD) and is totally blocked, so stenting it will not do anything. What you need to ask the cardiologist is....Has any heart muscle been killed due to the closure of D1? Perhaps you have opened some natural bypass vessels, called collaterals, to feed that part of the muscle.
What the Doctor is saying in the reply is that the cardiac output can show if any muscle damage has occurred, in other words, how well your heart muscle is working. This is usually stated as an EF percentage, for example EF 60 % or LVEF 60%. Maybe it is on your reports somewhere?
If it is there, and it says 60 %, don't panic, because no ones heart reads as 100%. Normal is somewhere between 55 and 75.
I hope this helps.
