I am a 61 year old male, had quad by-pass at the age of 50. On June 27, 2017 I felt chest pain across the top from shoulder to shoulder, with tingling down the left arm. I had a stent put in that day in the right rear artery. The left rear artery was too small to stent, and remains blocked. Last week I failed a nuclear stress test. Next week the cardiologist is going back in, says I may have another blocked artery.
2 questions: it's only been 3 months since the first stent. Is it possible for another artery to block that soon? and doesn't the stress test with the dye and x-rays show a blockage?
