I recently had a Lexiscan stress test and the results show a abnormality of the main artery of my heart (the widow maker the doctor called it). I am scheduled for a Heart Cath and mostly a stent or stents. I am only 46 years old and very nervous about this. The doctor said the Lexiscan is 99 % correct and he is sure I have blockage. My question is should I be worried about this or is this nothing to worry about. I have family history of heart attacks and heart trouble.
