My doctor ruled out the possibility STENT implant. and advised me not to go for any surgery. He advised me to take regular prescribed medicines.
On 23.08.2012 & 24.08.2012 I had an opinion of Two different senior Doctors. As per their advices I am on high risk and asked me to go LAD grafting immediately.
I agree totally with your cardiologist. I would forget the bypass surgery. The thing is, you have a good bypass already, one that nature has given you. Your right artery is feeding the left artery. Believe me, because you have no symptoms, I would leave it alone. If you have bypass surgery, those natural bypass vessels could close, and you could end up feeling worse. Bypass vessels done by surgery can fail, mine lasted 3 months. If the bypass fails, there is a chance that the natural ones will not re-open. I would listen to your cardiologist and use medication/healthy diet to keep going. Your blockage in the left artery has probably been there for many years, yet nature has done it's job perfectly and you was unaware. If something is working, leave it alone, you could make things much worse by interfering.
