Seriously though, I hope it's as painless and quick as possible. Grats though on not being too bad.

Wow, thanks for the update Garry.
I hope they will be able to keep everything moving right with your heart.
Good luck with getting into an eating right and exercise mode.

|sleepyboy||Well that some good news. Listen to the doctors, eat and exercise right.. You can do it, it'll be hard at first, but you can do it. So how long do you think it'll take before they put the stint in?|

Well the results of the exploration
I have some build up in the major artery on the front of my heart, nothing bad.
There are some small arteries on the bottom of my heart that appear to be 100% blocked, nothing can be done for them. Doctor says I have most likely had a minor heart attack from that.
One of the branches off the front of the heart has a 80% blockage, they are going to put a stint in to open that one up.
There is another blockage of about 60% in another area that I hope to get them to put a stint in.
There was some talk of some bypass surgery but the heart surgeon doesn't think that will do me any enough good at this point and I really don't want them cutting me open till it is necessary.
Medicines and exercise are in my future, looks like the treadmill will be put back in use after they clear me to get to it.
And I have to say the place where they poked a hole in my groin, well it is the feeling of getting kicked in the nuts that just won't go away for a couple of days. I'm glad I saved the generic Vicodin from some other issues.
