Hi all, I had a heart attack 12 years ago and have just had a new set of tests. Exercise test (disaster!) Echocardiogram, and last week another Angiogram which definitely was not a fun experience...
Upshot is that I'm told I have a totally blocked artery which is not suitable for stents or angioplasty. Also apparently not worth by-passing because it's feeding largely dead muscle.
So, it appears that I have left ventricular failure which is progressive and will kill me at some point if I don't get hit by a bus first.
The only thing they've come up with is a change from Atenolol 25 Mg daily, which I've been on for 12 years with no major problems, to Bisoprolol 5Mg.
It's not clear why they want the change.
I'll let you know how I get on!
