My Pre Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery - CABG X3

Many have asked me what actually prompted me to go for a heart check-up without any heart related crisis. The last one year I started to feel chest discomfort whenever I cycled up hills coupled with slight short of breath and it happened for many occasions.
01 June 2020 - I decided to do a check-up and my first visit to IJN (Institut Jantung Negara) or National Heart Institute in English located at Jalan Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpur.

A clip of my visit click here.

Since my first visit to IJN Private, I have consulted Dr. Emily Tan and went through several tests where the stress test was the most crucial, the report could indicate a high possibility of artery blockage in me.

13 July 2020, I visited Dr. Emily again and decided to do an angiogram test. And if required I was willing to go ahead for any angioplasty procedure. The date for angiogram test was then fixed on 17 July 2020.

16 July 2020 - I was back to IJN and to be admitted into the ward for angiogram test.
IJN Private clinic and the wards are located on the 6th floor.
Here I was, at the ward undergoing the necessary preparation for the angiogram test.
17 July 2020 - I was the first patient sent to the theater for the procedure. The room was super cold. Then Dr. Emily came and conducted the test, a screen was hung beside me and could see my heart and its arteries. The finding wasn't good, 2 severe calcification and 1 mild segment. In another words - 3 blockages found and require to be cleared.
While waiting for the next course of action to be taken, a substantiate amount of medication was prescribed, eat healthy and to go back to see Dr. Emily on the 17 August 2020 to decide on choice of revascularization. To stent or go for a triple bypass heart surgery.
