Different life: Do you have an acute coronary episode (heart attack)? Or the coronary artery disease discovered by stress test due to angina? Anyway you should go through a program call cardiac rehabilitation. Your life have to change. Weight reduction, exercise program, diet, LDL less than 100 possibly even less than 70mg/dl, top smoking, diabetes control, BP less than 130/80 etc. Close follow with cardiology.

You can have a normal life, but probably need to change your habits ( diet, lifestyle, exercise) because they are what caused the disease
