blocked carotid artery

I am a 56 year old male and I was told today that my left carotid artery is 100% blocked and my right is 75% blocked, my question's are they said my left is inopertable and I want to know what's next and also what is my life expectany now? also I have high blood pressure , chorlestoral problems, parkinson's and about 4 years ago I had a stent put in a 99% blocked artery which the VA DR. called the widow maker how come no one ever checked my carotid artery? I am not trying to sue ,you can't sue the VA, I just want to know why this wasn't part of a regular check up considering my past. It would seem that after all these other problem's they would have checked for this problem. Also if I do all the things I think they are going to tell me next week like eat right ,and start a excersize program how long can I extend my time here on mother earth?
