Thanks guys for all the well wishes . They worked on me about three hours last night but unfortunately they were unsuccessful . Everything is cool. May try something else down the road. Thanks again and it's back to boats and boat repair.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Marty. I had some cardiac stuff done too (stents in my case). I don't drink anymore...and I don't drink any less. It's true what they say. Your health is everything.
Get well soon!

Sounds like you may need better cardiologists, supposedly these days if they catch things in time no one needs die of heart attack , columbia prespeterian has some excellent people here in ny ,Ive also heard clevland clinic.
last year I had a heart attack ,LDA was 99% blocked, 3 stents same artery , im good to go.... hopin you get the same results

NY Presbyterian is ranked #3 in the nation in Cardiology. This is the point I was attempting to make too, that not all doctors, not all hospitals are created equal and I'd suggest another opinion from a higher ranked hospital. No hospital in Memphis is in the top 100 in any field. I love living in South Florida. However, not where I would seek treatment for any serious, complex medical condition.

One of my dock neighbors is a cardiac surgeon. My boat brokers wife is a cardiac nurse. The surgeon suggested that I seek a second opinion for my own issue but not from the top rated here in chicago(Northwestern), but an emerging, also university related teaching hospital (Evanston). He said that many "top rated" rest on their laurels and you are another number. The emerging one wants to win and is usually more agressive in their discovery of what to do for the patient

Well, could be true or could be where they are active. The major teaching hospitals are often just more knowledgeable of the latest methods. Regardless, if one hospital and set of doctors was not finding success, I'd go to another, even if the first ones were at the most renowned facility ever. Sometimes even in the same practice one is ahead of the other.

Holy crap, Marty. I had no idea. Remember you haven't taken William to Chattanooga yet. I will be offering prayers for a speedy and complete recovery. B & B is right on this one. If this is not successful it is time to start searching for alternatives. It's not that far up to the Mayo Clinic. Hope to see you back up and running in the near future.

Thanks everyone for thoughts,prayers and suggestions . I have what is called a CTO (chronic total occlusion ) . I won't die from it but it is uncomfortable with almost daily angina pain ( that's angina with an A ). I can work in my shop and even on the boat as long as I pace myself . Walking around the block , upstairs or a stressful situation will almost always bring on angina pain . I take a couple slow release nitroglycerin pills everyday but when it hits hard I have to take the mean stuff under the tongue . My goal is to try and get off this stuff if possible but not sure it is . I've had two open heart surgeries one in 2005 and another in 2015 . The blockage I have now is in area only reachable through a collateral artery . That's the reason for the last two procedures .
I have a wonderful life with a great family and very very special wife of 43 years and all you guys .Life is good . Let's get back to boating .

Joy and I are going to the yard to check on William's progress today . We're hoping to get back in the water soon for a late fall cruise .

Marty, Sorry to hear about your health problems. It makes me realize how blessed my family and I have been. Thanks for that. Our prayers will be with you. Get yourself fixed so you can get back to fixing your boat.

I just realized I could have phrased it better when I said" get yourself fixed". LOL You know what I meant.
