Thank You Dr. Pinckey for taking the time to reply to my question.

A stress test with an echocardiogram showed that I have a 60% blockage in one artery going into the heart. The Cardiologist wants to do a heart cath. He did not say an angiogram. So I was confused as to what the difference was. Taking a picture with dye in one thing. But, I do not want a stent or ballon in my heart. Since I already know that I have a problem I don't feel that knowing the extend of the blockage makes any difference since I will not approve a ballon or stent. I see him on 11-15-12. Wish me luck. I hopw that he doesn't scare me into any of these procedures. I know that medical advice can not be given.. just wanted to know the difference in the procedures before I see the Dr.

I saw you on the Eating video and you reversed your blockages by a 100% plant based diet. Congrats to you!

Since 10-11-12, I too have changed to a 100% plant based diet. Thank You again. It is very nice to have you and this discussion board for support.

Take Care
