Because it's risky
So is living with blocked arteries ;)

Imo I'd find a bad *** surgeon, who has done thousands of these and get it done.  Get your life back and feel awesome!!

And I am not just someone talking ****.  I'm only 29 survived multiple pe's, had cardiac surgery and have had someone go in my heart 7x.

I'm Also a nurse and trust me when I say quality of life is better than quantity.  At least from what I have seen and experienced.

I hope I've helped.  Please feel free to tell me to shut the hell up if I sound sucky lol
