    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    im not sure yet tiff - my heart and coronary arteries are in good shape - my right carotid artery is not - they estimate 70% blockage from cta scan - which is their cut-off - i see the cardiovascular surgeon tomorrow for eval - i think hes going to recommend some type of surgery - either removal of blockage or stenting - im kinda leaning toward removal rather than stenting - i dont believe this will be a problem in future treatment prognosis - im sure hes going to give me the quit smoking deal - ive been contemplating this for years now - lol - the endochronologist also says diabetes is a leading factor also - i hate that disease with a passion - for me its as bad or worse than hepatitis ( leanin toward worse ) - mine is very hard to control but im getting a better grip on it

    Hi Tiff
    I am still waiting to begin treatment but I have been watching my e mails. So many things to deal with in my life I am not sure if I am strong enough to begin at this point.
