hello i am a 38 year old male who has had a history of heart disease since i was 29 which at that age i had my first heart attack. They placed a stent. The following year I had my second heart attack with the placement of another stint. All went well for 3 years and i began to suffer sudden angina which lead to a quad bypass. After the bypass i went for  6 years and had no problems other than hypertension and high cholestrol and occasional severe chest pain. Last month after 3 visits to the ER my cardiologist finally did another cath and had to place two stents in. Since then i have had periods of chest pain and SOB with Nausea and vomiting. I have been hospitilized and my cardiologist did all the standard test. He said there was an area on the front of my heart that that he could not see too well but thinks i will be ok. My internets thinks its a blockage acording to the radiologist report but can not override my cardiologist. What do i do. The pain continues despite all the new medication. My cholestrol levels are critical. I am scared and do not know what to do. They both have told me that i will die from this and it may be within the next 2 years or sooner. Any help or thoughts will be greatly appericated.

I have a family history of heart disease going back to my grandparents and who knows before that. And on both sides of my family. So it looks like I have the same health problems and shortened life span as those before me. Not so. If you live the same life style as far as diet and lack of exercise is concerned, yes you are likely to meet the same fate.
I was 49 years old when I had a stent implanted in my heart, and I was already on a mostly vegetarian diet, and was an avid runner.
I was placed on all the meds. Plavix, lotrel, aspirin, lipitor etc and in large doses.
I believe I was lead to the help I recieved through prayer. And it cost me $16.00.
I bought a book called eat to live by Dr Joel Fuhrman. I read it in one sitting. Every thing said within its pages made common sense to me.
It was easy and worked within a short time .
I am now three years down the road from my heart problem, and I am off all the meds I am 6'0 and weighed 215 lbs, the fat came off very quickly (in the first eight weeks) and kept it off now 175lbs.
At last weeks annual cardio Dr visit my total cholesterol 138 hdl 53 , ldl 71, triglyserides 68, blood pressure below 120/70 is normal for me now.
I know you can do the same as I have. Dr Furhman takes on patients who have known heart disease who have been told the must have angioplasty or bypass and in over twenty years of practice has not lost even one to a heart attack. That in its self should say enough. Heart disease is not only preventable it is Reversible.
Most of his patients have the angina pains relieved in a few weeks.
All the very best BC.
PS: Have you noticed all the cholesterol lowering drug adds on television say "HELPS SLOW THE PROGRESSION OF HEART DISEASE" so taking statins may slow but will not stop the blockages from getting worse. You have to do more.
