With previous 4 bypass surgeries 10 years ago and today 3 main arteries are 100 percent closed with 2 bypass remaining open at 50-60% closed. I have visited multiple doctors and my diabetes seems to complicate the issue. The diabetes is currently under control and my weight is 145 and I am 53 years old. Never smoke. Never drink. I am heading to Stanford medical center tomorrow for a check up and other tests to see what my options are. I am thinking a heart transplant will be recommended. If a transplant is recommended what are my options and chance of success? Also, are there any other recommendations? Thank you very much in advance.
