heart issues

what happens if your blood blocks your veins?

Question by lea: what happens if your blood blocks your veins?
The girl I know tends to lie a lot. She is telling me that her mother have heart problem and has to do operation. When I asked what happened she replied back that apparently veins in her mother’s heart got blocked with blood and she has to do heart operation. Can blood in heart vein’s get blocked and if so is operation done directly on the heart? Because I thought it was below or above on your knee. This thing happen to her mother month ago and she can still walks and tend to be awaiting for operation.

Your friend has it backwards – her ARTERIES in her mother’s heart were blocked. In this instance, they take a vein from below the knee, and use it to do a bypass around the blockage.
