In brief: Depends on cause....
Depends on what is causing your chest pain and what type of blockages if any is seen on your coronary angiogram.
The best person to answer your question is your cardiologist. You should ask him/ her to explain findings of the angiogram or stress test and whether your chest pain is being potentially caused by a blockage.
