Had chest pains since March. Pushed for blood test.
Doc said cholesterol was too high at 5.7
I changed my diet straight away even though I'm a fit gym goer runner swimmer.
Then had stress test done..something cropped up 10mins into my test so then put in cardio ward.
2days later dicharged
Went on to have more pain (angina) and three admissions to A+E finally got CT scan then Angiogram last week..
Showed Right artery small and unobstructed.
Left main and circumflex are normal
Diffuse atheroma in LAD with perhaps a 30% narrowing in proximal segment but just beyond the second diagonal was a critical stenosis.
So I has a 3 x 15 XIENCE stent put in.
Apparently it was tricky because my LAD is at a strange angle?
Since last week's procedure I have got my tryglicerides down to 1.3 and overall cholesterol to 4.3....it took me 3weeks and good diet..
Should I mention this to cardiologist because I'm on 40mg statin that's already affecting me.
Plus Ticagrelor 90mg
And Lansoprazole 30mg
Please help anyone
