Generally speaking, bypass surgery is the treatment of choice with this extensive of disease. Stenting may be an option, but this would have to be determined based on your other past medical history and where the blockages are located. You should continue to discuss this with your primary cardiologist.

2 1/2 months ago my LAD was 100 % blocked  i had a massive heart attack then,but they also went in and cleaned out my stents and the blockage,a few days ago im back in the hospital with the LAD blocked 50 %,and this time got  a blood clot in my heart also.they told me if it blocks up again i also will need bypass surgery.my brother had bypass 5 years ago,ad hes doing alot better than i am,the stents do get blocked fairly quickly sometimes,its just a chance you take.
