Hello, I am a 48 y.o. male...I am having a heart cath done this 30th of April and I am scared to death...they found 3 places, front , back, and side which appear blocked...from treadmill stress test and echo...what keeps the plaque from breaking loose if I need a stint or a balloon? In my paperwork it says worse case I could stroke or and have heartattack...I have a fatty enlarged liver and can no longer take the cholesterol meds, I am now insulin and Metformin dependant...found that out a month ago, I have high blood pressure, been on meds for years and also have bi-polar with severe depression, cant even get out of bed a lot of days...I am 6ft. and 236 LBS. So I am overweight...I am a 100% DISABLED VET, my care has not been the greatest at my VA...Im having my cath done in Augusta Ga. at the VA there. So I throw all this out there but not really knowing why. Prayers are appreciated.
