Vascular Disease: What is your progression of disease?

Posted by tc4mayo @tc4mayo, Dec 28, 2022

Have had vascular disease since I was 35, numerous stents in leg. CABG at 65 and now blockages in lower aorta and femoral arteries. Previous stents in legs are closing !!!! Having more angioplasty done in a couple of weeks but doctor has said that “down the road” I could loose my leg. I do not have diabetes!!!! Anyone else experience this progression?

@tc4mayo, you've been dealing with vascular disease for a long time. Gosh.

Vascular disease includes any condition that affects your circulatory system, or system of blood vessels. There are many different types of vascular disease. This article describes them here:

Do you know what type of vascular disease you have?

Pulmonary hypertension. Did anyone else have this? In addition, I have grade 3 diastolic dysfunction.
