Start with an E.K.G, an EKG can give an indication of
a blockage and give the doctor an indication if an
angiogram is needed.
Bypasses are not as common now as they used to be,
because they can do angioplasty
and insert a wall stent
to open the artery
, the wall stent keeps the artery open.
I know that heart troubles run in families but just because
your dad had a triple bypass in his 50's does not mean
that you will have one (especially today)
My dad died of cancer at age 43, I had cancer at age 23 and never in my life thought that I would out live my dad, well so far
I have beat him by 16 years (I'm 59) but I do have clogged arteries including 50% blockage in the carotid arteries, have an aneurysm
and little blood flow through my legs. Coronary disease runs in my family, my oldest brother died at 59 2 yrs ago and 10 days later my youngest brother had a heart
attack at 54 (he survived).
My suggestion is to change your diet, now, exercise
and quit smoking
, I should have followed my own advice
maybe I would not be in the mess I'm in.
See a cardiologist and follow his advice and you should
Good luck to you
