Welcome to Heart Health! I am glad you stopped by to post. I hope you will return whenever you need support or want to give support to another.
I haven't had much experience with a CRP, but I'm including a couple of links that I'm sure will answers some of your concerns. The best thing you can do for yourself is to keep a positive attitude, choose a good cardiologist and ask him/her questions, no matter how trivial they may seem. Modern medicine is doing some pretty marvelous things and we're living longer now with heart disease than even 15 years ago. There's always hope - for you, for me, for all of us. I've lived with coronary artery disease for years and though I've had to quit smoking, lose weight, take meds, and watch what I eat, it's been worth it.
Please let us know
