HEART ATTACKS/DISEASE

How many here have had heart attacks or suffer chest pains?  I have had two of them, and was suffering chest pains daily.  Doctors found about a dozen blocked major arteries and heart damage. Did nothing. No stents. Discovered there are there drills and lasers that unclog arteries. Those were developed in the late 90s.

What did I do?  I could have taken nitro for chest pains each day and simply hope I wake up each day. Studies I have read say that even though nitro opens the artery, it eventually destroys the artery if you keep taking it. I also cut the fat intake. Then I discovered arginine and a few other supplements that open arteries, hopefully without destroying them.

Anyone else have a dozen or more blocked arteries? My doctor says that's nothing!  Apparently there are so many major arteries to keep me alive, I am expected to last another 20 years.  If it were you, what would you say abuot that?  


This discussion is related to 85 years old patient's bypass blocked 3 months after the surgery.

A dozen blocked major arteries? and you are alive to type in the forum? That's impossible, isn't it?
