What condition would you be in if one side of your heart is 100% blocked ?

What condition would you be in if one side of your heart is 100% blocked and the other is blocked 80-90%? Hi. I have been told that a relative of mine has a 100% blockage on the right side of her heart and the left is blocked 80-90%. The doctors have said they can not operate and their is not anything that can be done. Is this possible ?

Maybe heart transplant...but on an older person...they would not risk it as it is very taxing surgery to recover from, plus the bills plus the anti-rejection drugs and all that is IF you find a tissue match. She could get a second opinion, if she so chooses.
