70% blockage possible stent in future ..heart

Posted By reb on July 16, 1999 at 10:01:12
I am a 55 yr,female, post quad bypass with complications of ARDS..4 wks on vent, 6 years ago. I also have chf, copd, Diabetis, post fem-pop bypass times 3. I use o2@3L during night. My activities are limited, but can maintain my apartment, drive, shop at my pace. Recently after having severe back pain I had a heart cath which showed 70% block age in one artery. The physician is hesistant about a stint as a long stint would have to be used. The pain has eased up. My question is how severe is 70%
blockage? I am leaning towards having nothing since pain has eased up and stint sounds more life threatening. Thanks for any input.
