100% blocked RCA.......

last week my father had a heart attack...then it revealed by doctor that its already 3 days before but it was not recognised and hence untreated...the report of angiography are as follows....

LMCA:Normal
LAD:Thereb is luminal irregularity but no flow limiting stenosis.
LcX:The terminal one third of LcX is diffusely diseased
RCA:There is an ecstatic second part that shows abrupt thrombotic occlusion(100%) with no anterograde opacification
LV gram was not performed

so as per doctor, his angiogram revealed presence of distally diseased LCx and total thrombic Occlusion of RCA.PTCA with stenting to RCA is recommanded
with caveat that the benefit of procedure will be moderate at best.
moreover the chances of meaningful revascularisation in this situation are not very high
also bypass is not suggested....

so what to do ? can he live normal life? his age is 56.
can medication help to improve life quality along with proper diet and morning walk?

So sorry to hear of his issues. He will be able to live a reasonably normal life, he will have some reduced tolerance to physical exertion, but any pain can be controlled by vasodilators. Do you know what his EF% is? That is the most important thing to know in determining his quality of life. If you have it let us know so we can better answer your question.
