I had 3 stents implanted a while ago and doing fine. The doctors told my my body had created one of it’s own to bypass a problem. Interesting.

My sister’s heart “grew a bypass” as well. God created an amazing system, huh?

My Dad also had a “natural bypass”. When he was in his fifties, he had a temporary blockage, but the blood detoured into this vessel his body had created, so he didn’t have much damage, and did not have to have surgery at that time.

He was 80 years old before he had to have heart surgery, and lived to be 84. If not for heavy smoking during his young adult years which led to lung fibrosis, he might have lived much longer.
