Hello All,
   I am a new member and this is my first post. Thanks to Dr. Davis for all his work, including the Circle, a real life changer.
I am facing the probability of bypass surgery, and would like everyone’s feedback (especially Dr. Davis) about when such surgery is truly necessary.
   First some background: I am a generally fit and healthy 65 man, asymptomatic and never had any surgery, but recently had a Calcium CT score of 1320. My other main stats are: TC 205, LDL 112, HDL 70, Trig 95, ApoB 120 (doctor would not order the subfraction test), LP(a) 0.06, HBA1C 5.2, Insulin 5, FBG 100, normal thyroids. I am taking 20mg of generic Crestor.
   With the calcium CT scan I was also given the radioactive angiograph that sometimes goes with it (sadly, before I had read Dr. Davis’ warning against getting it) and of course it revealed almost useless information in which the technician’s best guess was that there ’might possibly be’ stenosis of ’up to 30%’ in the left main and LAD. However, on the subsequent stress test my cardiologist said the heart, while appearing in good shape, was not contracting fully which suggests a blockage. He has ordered a followup angiogram and said that if there’s a meaningful blockage in the left main that will necessitate a bypass, and if it’s anywhere else it will mean either stent or a change of medication.
   As I will need to make a decision soon once the angiogram is done, my main question is: what level of blockage in the left main would justify a bypass (something I would love to avoid if possible), and at what level would it be ’safe’ to stay with non surgical treatment including the Undoctored program. All of your comments are welcome please, this has all landed on me like a sudden storm and I’m wondering who and what to believe. Thanks.

an interesting test is to send in several samples of poo from the SAME person, but with different names, and then see how congruent all the reports and recommendations are.

Further to our discussion, I only just noticed this study from late last year - interesting reading:

Malcolm, I really enjoyed hearing about your father. I appreciated the "long answer to a short question."

Thanks for sharing.

Pete
