• My daughter-in-law is 32yo white, diabetic and has had in the past 3 years 11 stents for 85-90% blockage (several were in the same sites) then in March 2014, a triple bypass. Two weeks after the bypass, experiences same symptoms of chest tightness, sob etc and went back in the hospital to find one graft had failed already and another artery was at 70% blockage so more stents were placed. In the past month, she has been back in hospital twice - once finding that another graft failed and there was more blockage to LAD. Her LAD is totally stented "full jacket", as they say... Now she is in to rule out stroke. They have found that there is already more blockage and the other artery is at 50%....We are thinking some type if blood disorder causing this abnormal clotting?? Her cardio is at a loss of good solutions and we are wanting her to go to Cleveland Clinic. Has anyone known of a person so young having these repeated blockages? I'm an RN and hubby is retired paramedic and we have never run across this... Hoping maybe someone out there has??!
