Q&A: I have a blockage of my caroid artery between 40 & 50% what are the chances of me having a stroke I am very?

Question by mickey: I have a blockage of my caroid artery between 40 & 50% what are the chances of me having a stroke I am very?
nervous. My Dr. said it has to be at least 70% blocked for them to even consider doing anything about it. I would like someone else’s opinion.

They can unblock it before it is 70 % blocked. BUT
First they try medicine. (warfarin..a blood thinner)
Also a change in diet…low cholesterol foods
Surgery …carotid endarterectomy or angioplasty.
No matter what route the cardiologist takes the patient is CLOSELY MONITORED
If you feel your doctor isn’t serious…find another cardiologist.
