frequency of high count of coronary blockages
deadmanwalking57 posted:
I am curious about how often heart patients have over a dozen coronary blockages, survival rate, and longevity.

I myself had a large number, and my cardiologist did not think I had a good prognosis, even after CABG for the three major blockages, the remainder considered inoperable.

I am now 8 years post-CABG.
