Seen it. Took care of a patient who had their CABG at 49. Scary. Sounds like familial hypercholestemia to me. This blew my mind:
The oddest thing about the angioplasty was that for six hours they told me not to move my foot, and I didn’t know why.
I know whenI’m taking care of post-angio patients, the whole, “you had a large hole in your femoral artery” is the first thing I bring up when doing post-angio instruction.
