Re: thought i was having a heart attack

Phil normally they will not do any intervention on a blocked artery until it gets to a certain percent. I believe that percent depends on where the blockage is located, but normally they won't intervene until about 70 to 75% blocked. They probably will treat you with meds until the problem gets worse. Hopefully with some life style changes and meds it won't get worse!
