Can a doctor or any medical person explain this to me My Cardiologist did my Angiogram and advised for a Surgery of CAD , Now the Surgeon before deciding to go for a surgery he want me to have a Thallium test ( Profusion Scan ) . What does this mean , is the Surgeon not sure about the Advice of the Cardiologist - or does he wants to sort out further things when he does the Surgery . Can anyone give further advice and explaination
My fiance has coranary artery disease. Has had quadruple bi-pass surgery. Three stents inserted with one failure and replaced. He is a white 50 year old. High blood pressure. Also, needs knee joint replacement, but they keep discouraging him from having the surgery. He keeps telling me he is not going to live long and I need to be prepared for this. His heart surgery was in 2007. Please give me an average life expectancy of people who have been through what he has. It s uncomfortable talking to him about it. I m going to be married to him soon, I need answers. Thank you Kelli

My grandfather is having a heart bypass tomorrow due to him having clots in his legs, the doctors told him he would not survive the surgery on his legs in he did not have this heart bypass, how risky is this operation going to be?
