Thank you for commenting on my blog. Sometimes while the artery is forming the blockage (increasing in size), another artery will branch off and bypass the blockage. For my husband, this didn't happen. What is amazing is that there was no blood flow - on the cath dvd no artery past the blockage shows up until the stent is put in. That is because there was no blood flow at all past that point so you can't see the artery on the dvd till blood is going through it again.
Thank you for your comment on my blog. My past eating history from youth on is very similar to yours. That is why I am discovering it is so important for me to track because it was very easy to fall back into undereating.
