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.

I have seen two doctors for chest pain. I have had stress test tilt table test and angiogram done. One doctor says that it is coronary artery spasms and the other says its angina. I quit my stressful job, and haven t had an attack in awhile. But in the last week I have had two attack. They seem to be getting worse. I went to the ER for this last one and they said everything looked ok. Can you have a mini heart attack and not know? I am still experiencing chest pain, but don t want to go back to the ER.

hello. was wondering if i should be concerned. my mother has atrial fibrillation as was given digoxin and metroprolol a few weeks ago. a cardiologist that checked her two days ago said that her heart rate is to slow & that those drugs weren t helping (she was feeling dizzy upon exertion...i.e walking 2-3 mins). now her heart is racing (approx 100-105 bpm and i m concerned. she says she feels fine but does this mean she s at increased risk of heart attack or stroke?
