Living with Restenosis is a 2-in-1 book including Surviving a Successful Heart Attack -and- Chronic Total Occlusion: After the Heart Attack, the Statins and Restenosis. They compliment each other; they convey the whole story. 'Surviving' covers the period of discovering that my first 50 years of personal dietary guidelines were based on mass-media advertising and bad science (lipid hypothesis). It ends after recuperating from both the physical heart attack and the statin-induced side effects; however, what next? Chronic Total Occlusion (previously published in 2007 as 'The Next 20,000'), is that new direction, which includes living with stent restenosis. To the casual reader, the lifestyle changes I have made may be construed as radical. That is what makes 'Chronic Total Occlusion' incomplete. Without experiencing the emotional scars described in SASHA that have remained following those two statin-induced side effect years, the reader of 'CTO' will not be able to appreciate a lifestyle I now accept as totally normal.
