I had chest pains this past week so drove to ER when they became more severe. Diagnosed with 99.5% blockage in Left Anterior Descending Artery(LAD) Received 3 inches of stents immediately. I was lucky. No irreversible or significant damage to heart.
LAD is called the Widowmaker because it supplies most of the blood to the heart. It also is unusual because blockage can move from 50 to 100% quickly. No other artery had blockage for me.
Be more aware than I was in case you have chest pains. Mine started right sided and infrequent.
Thank God for Doctors, hospitals and cardiac treatment technology.
