Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
20-30 percent stenosis at your age is not too risky.. It will be present in most patients with atherosclerosis because of diabetes/hypertension.
Can you give a complete list of all medicines you're taking?
Are you on aspirin prophylaxis?
Feel free to discuss further.
