>>>>Almost always there is no problems with a 70% occluded vessel, and certainly there should be no concern regarding your life span based on that information.  If you have chest pains (angina pectoris), medication can relieve any pain, and a healthy lifestyle, proper diet, exercise,etc. can stop any progression. If there would be a future problem associated with occluded vessels it usually isn't a massive heart attack.  What would happen would be heart failure and symptoms would be shortness of breath, fatique, possibly chest pains, etc.  

You shouldn't be concerned.  If you have any other questions or comments you are welcome to respond.  Thanks for sharing, and I wish you well going forward.  Take care,

Ken
