We should keep in mind that the benefit he gets from the surgery is worth taking the side effects or effects from the surgery. Go ahead with the treatment and advise your Dad to follow a regular life style with walking , yoga , meditation included to keep good health.

hi,
If his angigram is showing tripal vessal block, how his ECG should be normal? If patient is walking more than 1 km without any symptoms like chest pains, dyspnea, chest discomfert then there is no need to do operative only lifestyle modification program and some internal ayurvedic medication medication along with allopathy medicins will definatly work. visit ssayurveda.in

Hi

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Your father is suffering from Triple Vessel Disease.This can lead to a heart attack if not treated in time.I advise you to opt for Coronary Artery Bypass graft surgery and regular follow up with your Cardiologist.There are options like angioplasty , but in people with a disease of this severity it is best to opt for Bypass surgery.

Take care.

my friend is male, 58 yrs. Had a heart attack 3 yrs ago and had a bypass. He had a mild heart attack last month no bypass.Today at his check up his cardio. dr. said that he has an 80% blockage in 4 artries not counting the ones bypassed 3yrs ago.These blockages are in places where there is a 75% chance that an operation would kill him, according to the dr. The dr said that my friend is a walking time bomb, gave him 6-8 months and added that stress, strain, physcial exertion could cause it to happen quicker.I know diet and exercise are very important in keeping a healthy heart.Is there ANYTHING my friend can do except wait?

Hi, My father is 63 years old. 2 days back he suffered a chest pain for a long time when he was walking for quite sometimes. He did some chest examinations and after he was shown a cardiologist he told that apart from a blockage in heart there is a small miocadial infarction.
I don't stay with him and i really don't know what is the his health condition and what is the immediate doable for him.
He is fine now. Some medicines are given. I don't understand was it a heart attack because the doctor haven't told like that.
I stay in Bangalore and is in Kolkata. Pls suggest the immediate doable and places where treatments would be good.
Regards,
