Larry -- long-term damage to heart from cocaine?

I have a question for you regarding the effects of cocaine on the heart. I realize there is a danger of stroke or other heart/brain damage from the acute effects of a cocaine binge. But assuming one abstains from the drug, is there any long-term damage to blood vessels, etc., and does this damage cure over time? I have a doctor appointment tomorrow -- would he be able to assess whether there is damage to the heart or, in particular, the brain from my recent use? Or, if my blood pressure and heart rate are normal, and I continue to exercise, will I more-of-less heal?

Finally, is three times of use even something to worry about with regard to this?

Thanks, from your neighborhood pest,
