Hi,

I have noted the details of your mothers health.

As mentioned by you she has a 90% block in the RCA. Blockages are due to build up of fat in the arteries and these blocks cannot be dissolved by medicines. If the artery is large and if she is symptomatic she may need an angioplasty regarding which your cardiologist would be able to advise you. Medicines may help her to get some relief from symptoms. The medicines being taken by her appear to be appropriate except for the fact that I notice that her haemoglobin level is less and she is not on any medications for that for which I suggest you speak to your physician about it.

Hello,

Looking at the severity of the block I would opine that she will be better off doing the angioplasty. She should avoid fatty food like ghee, butter, fried items, red meat etc. She can do Pranayam.

my college-aged daughter has a 5 mm kidney stone in her right kidney. They have worked her in to have it surgically removed (basket procedure) next week, and will have a stent for a week afterwards.She has a required field trip over that weekend and she doesn t want to have to endure that while having a stent (she had a stent for a month last semester and was miserable the entire time). She had a kidney infection the last week of January,the ultrasound they did then found this stone. She has had one short bout of pain/nausea since then (2-3 hours). She wants to wait until after the field trip to have the surgery. The next time available would be the week of March 21.Would it be dangerous to wait?
