In brief: Severe heart disease

It sounds like they are saying you have inoperable heart disease.
The best results that I have seen for such patients have been with a nutritional based approach described by dr. Caldwell essylstyn at the cleveland clinic. Consider his book: prevent and reverse heart disease: the revolutionary, scientifically proven, nutrition-based cure [paperback] at amazon.Com for $10.98.

In brief: Trust your doc

The 100% blocked right artery can only be bypassed, but you may already be doing that by developing collateral blood flow.
The 20% narrowing is not enough to warrant stenting or other measures, just meds to lower your cholesterol and control your bp.
