In brief: Assumptions

Assuming that when they stented your right coronary artery, they didn't find any other severe blockage and that your ejection fraction is normal (>55%) despite the other scarring, your prognosis is very good (>90% 5 year survival for single vessel disease with normal lv function).
Live long and prosper!
