In brief: High chance

Your risk of heart attack is high.
Your risk of already having heart attack "silent" is high. Your primary care doctor has already established a contact with cardiology since you are aware of triple vessel coronary disease. You should be taking medications already, be involved in weight monitoring and daily exercise. Stay involved with your doctors and look to family support for help.

In brief: High risk

Given your medical history of triple vessel coronary heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure your risk of having a heart attack is significantly higher compared to someone that does not have any of these conditions.
The addition of sleep apnea increases your risk even greater as having sleep apnea alone can increase your risk of a heart attack by 1.5 -3.5 times.
