Had nuclear scan...showed ischemia in anterior wall and apex..positive ECG. Resting nuclear test shows 1mm st depression in inferior leads, Then sent for an angiogram which showed only 50% blockage, some 30%. No further tests...take 81 mg. aspirin. Since this test, the angio site pains and it hurts down my leg, and my toe goes numb. Is this normal. Doc doesn't seem to be concerned.

Hi Jo230...My best advice is if you are doctoring with a Cardiologist, then feel safe...If you are with a primary doctor who is not into this field of specialized medicine, then check it out....Take care...
