If his doctor or the nurse says for him not to return to work that day, then he should follow their advise. If a large enough blockage is found, they will pretty much set up a surgery date pretty quickly. My dad had this test done, they found 3 blockages at that time, and admitted him into the hospital. It was a few days later before he had the surgery (bypass), but they kept him in the hospital up until the surgery, because of the risk of a heartache (from the blockage), and kept him on monitors and etc... He ended up with 5 blockages, once they got in there, they had to do 5 bypasses.. he did wonderfully, and its been over a year now, and he feels better now than he did before, BUT he didn't even realize he felt bad before, because the blockage took place over time.. now that he had the bypass, he realizes how much better he feels now.. Anyways, if i can help in anyway, feel free to write me.. ~
