72 year old soap opera star Susan Lucci underwent surgery to fix blocked arteries, according to People Magazine.
She discovered a problem while shopping. Lucci went to hospital in extreme discomfort, and the doctors there discovered a 90% blockage in the heart’s main artery and a 70% blockage in another. She says she was “shocked.” Lucci says she’s sharing her story so other women monitor themselves. “We often put ourselves on the back burner,” Lucci said. “But if your body is telling you something, we need to pay attention.”
