My dad had a triple bypass 20 years ago (which an extensive heart stress test at his local clinic did not even indicate a problem but we all knew there would be because about 99% of his male relatives have all died from heart attacks going back decades) and has been on Statins ever since. Luckily he hasn't really had any side effects from them. So about 3 or 4 years ago he was having issues with being tired all the time and chest pains. He went in for an angiogram .. they couldn't get his blood pressure down so they checked his kidneys.. one had 2 arteries that were 90% blocked (stents were put in)... so how does someone on statins for 15+ years end up with blocked arteries IF Statins are supposed to prevent that very thing?

His triple bypass still looks great (he's 81 now) however the 4th main artery was about 50% blocked so they put a stent in that as well. He's old enough now that it really doesn't matter. I think his issues were stomach related (they also put him on a med for acid reflux) and possibly related to his kidney's not working properly due to lack of blood flow.

I don't go to doctors unless I know I need something fixed. It's such a racket.. most of them (doctors) belong in prison... not just any prison but an Office Space style federal pound them in the ass prison.
