my mother is 69 years old and she had two strokes back in 05 which left her unable to walk and unable to talk and she doesn t get any excersise. She started complaining about chest pains last week and was rushed to the hospital where we found out that the three main arteries to her heart has sanifacint blockage. The doctors dont want to do a triple by pass becasue of her age and her condition, so they are just giving her meds to prevent further blockage. What is the life expectancy for her?

Hi My husband has had 3 strokes and is at age 47 right now. His last stroke was 10 yrs ago with one 100 percent blocked corotid artery. He has been complaining of chest pain for a month and they did many tests over the past week. It shows both frontal arteries are 100% blocked and the back two are ok. What would be the life expectancy and the seriousness of this disease and how can I help to prolong his life. He has been type 1 diabetic since he was 2 yrs old.

My question is: how soon will stem cell researchers find a way to grow new heart muscle and the blood vessels to feed them? Several years ago a cardiac surgeon butchered me, blocked blood flow to two parts of my left ventricle and robbed me of an active life. I would like to return to a normal existence.

The last two days I have been experiencing buzzing in my right ear. This is also the side I have some blockage going on in carotid. Five years ago I had a mild stroke because the left carotid artery was almost completely blocked. I had surgery, and I have no residual effects of the stroke. I have kept an eye on the carotids with ultrasound every year. This ringing in the right ear is not constant, but comes & goes. It is a loud mechanical buzzing noise. Am I right in thinking it is probably due to the carotid blockage, or would you think it could be something more significant that needs further testing? Thank you.
