Have come down to one functional artery after living several years with CAD. What will be my life span under severe limitations?
after several years of living with CAD, I am now down to only one functioning artery (front). My cardiologist is very vague when we discuss mortality. Realistically I understand there is no time stamp, but I would like to know what I can expect kind of. I understand about management and exercise, all I can get from him is I can make it a while with some severe limitations. Whats a while? And what are sever limitations?
this is a very tough question which you have asked. dont take tension. follow the advice of your cardiologist. take the medications on time. and if you get chest pain , breathlessness and palpitations visit the hospital immediately.
