Anyone have Small vessel spasms in their heart?

I found out that the blockage is literally right at the edge of my by-pass graft, which is why they are scared to touch it. So, as I told them, I have to hurt or let this block until I have another heart attack. They told me that they are hoping that the Rapatha will lower my "bad" cholesterol and that it will stop blocking up. I will not see results for 6 weeks. My doctor actually called Barnes, but that hospital does not take my insurance, so his friend that works at that hospital can't see me and see if he will attempt to fix the blockage.
I told my cardiologist's partner (he's [my doctor] Jewish so he won't be in until Monday, if I'm still here) that I'm just a problem child. Nothing about my body is normal.

The waiting is difficult. I keep repeating what my doctors tells me, “this is a marathon”. You can do this!

I have been resistant to cholesterol drugs and currently go in to have the LDL cleaned out (kinda like a dialysis process) every other week. My LDL rebounds quicker than normal from that process as well. My untreated LDL of 300 is not under control and it has been difficult to find a comfort level with knowing what that leads to.

I tried Repatha twice and learned that while it takes 6 weeks to see the full impact it does show up in bloodwork sooner. You could let your doctor know it would help your stress level to check sooner. Repatha is darn effective at reducing LDL a bunch and you may have seen new 5-year results have just come out. I believe findings are it reduces events and deaths by 25%.
