If he is comfortable on medication and has made the lifestyle changes necessary to lower the risk of progressing his heart disease, then the blockage may never increase in size. Many people are lucky enough to be in that situation. If the blockage does increase, then it should be gradual and his symptoms will increase, giving warning signs. What are his symptoms at the moment with medication?
