Which is (as a whole) more dangerous. I ask as two co-workers parents both suddenly had health problems. One her father was having gas pains (probably a small heart attack) and he wound up with Quintuple ByPass surgery.
The other her mother sprained her ankle and since she hadn’t been to the doctor in years her doctor made her take a battery of test. He told her her arteries were so clogged she was a heart attack waiting to happen.
The reason I ask is the the second girl was worried as the first girls father was in the hospital and she thought it was as dangerous
I told her that while any operation is dangerous angioplasy is not nearly as serious as bypass surgery. After all angiospasy didn’t require general anesthesia or even overnight hospitalization.
Then my some other coworkers were telling me that I was wrong and it is as dangerous if not more than a bypass.
I have know at least 10 people to get angioplasy and all were in and out of the hospital in one day. Some back to work in three days. And while I understand any operation varies in terms of seriousness in terms of an individuals health etc. as a whole which is more dangerous? And why would angioplasy be more dangerous? Or why would people say it was?
