Avatar m tn I was told different things when in the hospital by two different doctors but I do understand that I have a small amount of damage with the heart working at 47. It has been 2 1/2 weeks since my heart attack and the doctor is telling me it is left up to me when I should and want to go back to work. I have a job that I lift more then 50 lbs and I do not want to have another heart attack.
Avatar m tn From the ER, they took him to a hospital that provided him with hypothemia therapy where his body was brought down to about 85 degrees. He has survived the heart attack and all of his vitals are very good. Our concern is how long his brain recovery may take. He is receiving therapy, walking, motor skills coordination activities, speech therapy and he appears to be doing remarkedly well although he is sometimes confused and a little agitated.
Avatar n tn My girlfriend, 50 years old, had a heart attack in May 2009 with good recovery. In January 2010 she had a blockage in a major artery causing another heart attack. The blockage was in an old stent so they cleaned it out and replaced the stent. She was released with no restrictions except for 5 days. She is paranoid now about her heart rate. She is afraid to do anything to raise it fearing another heart attack. She has a follow up appointment on the 5th of February...
Avatar n tn I would be very optimistic. Meanwhile you can assume they are giving her the best of care. There are good chances for full recovery, but it depends upon the degree of damage. The term "heart attack" is rather meaningless. Visit often, hold her hand or keep your hand on her shoulder when you visit, and do not hesitate to inquire as to the name of the physician on duty and ask him, or the duty nurse a question every time you visit.
Avatar f tn i was just googling my symptoms and found these symptoms linked again and again with heart attacks I was wondering if you think this could have actually been a heart attack. I dont really like doctors, and hate feeling like a time waster. I would just like your opinion on what you think this may have been. Thankyou.
Avatar f tn My brother-in-law has had 2 open heart surgeries for an acute heart attack and based on his recovery is my basis and other than a back pain problems he was in good health. For individuals there are never hard/fast rules for any medical therapy, and too oftened that is not taken into consideration for a recovering patient. One year complete recovery time is a conservative estimate and not unreasonal.
Avatar f tn by question is if not take hormon tablets immediately deceases related heart and other problem attack me.kindly suggest me what should i do after this surgery now i am feeling little un healthy and pain in stomach/ what are the symptoms by lack of hormon in the body.
Avatar n tn My uncle had a heart attack and the 2D Echo test has show EF as 18%. What does this mean? how criticical is the stage.
948996 tn?1245949077 Try not to worry as it could have been only a small heart attack with no heart muscle damage. People can have heart attacks with pacemakers. My Mom had several with her pacemaker over 12 year period.
Avatar f tn Hi I'm 39 and had a heart attack a month ago got the usual meds but not a lot of support I'm just wondering how I'm meant to feel or what everybody feels when it happens to them ?
Avatar n tn I understand this to be symptomatic of stable angina. My question is, how does one determine a normal recovery rate from a heart attack? At one point is the decision made that recovery is not on pace and that further intervention (bypass, angioplasty) is required? I have reduced my fat intake to 75 grams or less daily, don't smoke, am perhaps 10 lbs.

Avatar n tn So much depends on how well he has controlled his diabetes during the years before the heart attack, how well he is controlling the diabetes NOW, how his cholesterol levels have been, his diet, his exercise, etc. We are individual humans and no two people are alike.
Avatar f tn I am on Plavix for my Heart Attack and my husband is on Coumadin for a blood clot he had 3 years ago 1 month after he had broken his ankle and had to have surgery. I say he should be off the Coumadin already. He went back to work full time after the broken ankle and also lost 60 lbs. He says the Plavix is just as bad.
1348086 tn?1370783185 yes every time i have a panic attack i think that so your not alone.
Avatar n tn After cardiac rehab his EF was 40% and the cardiologist was thrilled with the improvement considering the damage from the MI. Prior to the heart attack he was suffering from depression. Now, while his recovery has been relatively good, he is suffering from severe fatigue. How can you tell if the fatigue is related to cardiac damage or depression?
Avatar f tn After a heart attack and heart cath. is it normal for your left underarm to hurt sometimes and to have tingling in your left arm as well as numbness?
Avatar m tn Thurs. 10/16/08 This is my 11th day out from heart attack and 9th day from quadraple bypass surgery (Dr. Kwan). This is my best day as far as pressure and energy. Stopping the 2nd blood pressure med has helped. I have been able to sit-up longer and walk more. I am finally getting my appetite back. My main concern right now is the pain I am feeling in my shoulder and arm (both on my left side). I am using ice and tylenol at this time.
976897 tn?1379167602 Just had angioplasty for a heart attack and thought I would post the experiences so others can hopefully benefit in some way or other. It was last thursday morning when I walked upstairs to the bathroom. I felt very light headed, so much that it was a real effort to not pass out. I had chest pains on a scale 1-10 (8) which would not go away even when I was relaxed. Sweating was incredible, I haven't sweated so much in all my life. No palpitations and no shortness of breath.
