If the transition is slow enough to allow the growth of 'collateral vessels' around the area of closure, yes. It is important that you take your meds your doctor prescribes, especially aspirin and cholesterol medication, and keep any diabetes under good control and DO NOT SMOKE!
With your doctor design an exercise regimen that is safe so that the growth of these vessels will be promoted. Your doctor may wish to have you in cardiac rehab.
