My husband has been disgnosed with severe  diffuse multi vessell cad he is unable to have any surgical intervention , he is 54  diabetic and is treated for high blood pressure , He had an acute coronary syndrome 11 months ago and did not have diffuse disease at that time.He is breathless at night and walking round the house he sweats proffusely and feels exhausted most of the time.Can anyone explain what the future is likely to hold thank you

To obtain so much disease progression in 11 months makes me wonder what is wrong with his lifestyle. Is his Cholesterol below average? is his blood pressure now under control? is he smoking? is he consuming lots of processed sugars? is he under lots of emotional stress? Does he consume a healthy diet? Remove all those risk factors and it is very likely you will be telling us how he doing in years to come. I had a serious attack at the age of 46, and was found to have terrible disease. That was in Feb 2007. Now, nearly 7 years later, I'm in the same situation but still hanging in there. What they need to do is get the balance of his medication right. I can tell you what works perfectly for me, and perhaps you could see what his Doctor thinks. I tried lots of different medications, and many didn't suit me. Most made me feel nauseous, dizzy and short of breath. My regime of medication is now...
Ramipril (blood pressure) 2.5mg morning....2.5mg evenin
Bisoprolol (beta blocker)  1.25mg morning..1.25mg evenin
Atorvastatin (cholesterol) 80mg evening
Clopidogrel (anti clotting) 75mg morning

It took a long time to find the medications which worked for me. My blood pressure was averaging 160/105 and is now 120/80. My total cholesterol was nearly 400 and is now 154. I have no shortness of breath day or night, unless I do something really energetic like running. If I miss any of those medications, I certainly notice a huge difference.
