Aug 4, 2017 · Chronic Total Occlusion in Heart & Blood Health

@thankful Wow, I’m amazed you made it from a widomaker issue. Referring to the amount of time gone by before before Drs intervened. Miracle! My widowmaker callapsed (occluded) on the operating table so not much damage. Lower part of heart damage only. I had another heart attack a month later.
Anyway, the kinds of meds I’m on that was asked of me by @OKANAAZPEREIRA are:
Aspirin, Ativan, buspirone, norco, plaquenil, isosorbide, Lipitor, nitro (as needed), plavix, ranexa, requip, traxodone.
@donning, this is a tough position you are in on the decision your up against. Surgery or not. My take, and only and as a non doctor, I’d be willing to do the surgery only if my other body parts are healthy. I look at it this way, if you die on the table there is no pain but if you die of a heart attack out side of hospital there is. I’m feeling pretty good about death than most. I look at it as a chance to go home and trying to get there with little pain as nessesary. I’m a wimp. If the surgery works out then look at all the better quality of life you will have. So sorry to be Blunt but can’t think of any other way at the moment. If your breathing and can still function pretty good then be happy without the surgery. I’ve never had to make this decision. I just know I was calling out for them to stop my pain during my heart attack. I’d like to avoid another as much as possible.
You asked about how they went in if I’m understanding correctly. They when in my right wrist and up the arm with the stant. Other than that I haven’t asked how or what. I’m sorry. I was just happy they didn’t cut open my chest.
Hope this helps.

Wow, what an endeavor for you. Amazed you had no symptoms. Scary! I’ve had two strokes and lots of blood clots and two heart attacks. I’ve lost track of the multitude of CT’s I’ve had. Sure hope the next DX isn’t Cancer. (Hoping there is none) X ing my fingers. I wish you well and no more DX for you either!

Up to 7 stents now. 6 in groin/legs and one in heart. I have a Gene mutation that makes my blood thicken. I’m on heavy doses of blood thinners. I’m alive and well. Blessed.

I agree. Life without humor is dull.
