Avatar m tn I am a 48 year old white male, and I have already had a total of 5 heart attacks (all within the last 5 tears). At first my doctoer thought it was due to my low HDL, as it has been lower that 28 for the last 5 years. But after my last attack, about 3 months ago, the doctors are now thinking that my body is trying to reject the 3 stents the have pkaced in me. This last attack was pretty serious, and we are planning to have a defibri;ator implanted later this month.
Avatar f tn My left breast was very tender today. It hurt (sharp pain -- similar to how heart attacks are described) with each inhale.
Avatar n tn Public health experts predict that heart disease will increase worldwide, as people are living longer. Approximately 500,000 people die in the USA every year because of heart attacks. Another 250,000 die every year form other heart diseases, such as heart failure. Another 150,000 die from strokes. In total, about 1 million people die in the USA from cardiovascular diseases. Heart disease is the leading killer of both men and women in this country.
Avatar n tn How many here have had heart attacks or suffer chest pains? I have had two of them, and was suffering chest pains daily. Doctors found about a dozen blocked major arteries and heart damage. Did nothing. No stents. Discovered there are there drills and lasers that unclog arteries. Those were developed in the late 90s. What did I do? I could have taken nitro for chest pains each day and simply hope I wake up each day.
Avatar n tn I am a 28 year old female who has some concerns. My father died of a heart attack in his early 50's. He has 6 other brothers and sisters and all of them are living yet with no major health problems. My dad's father died of a stroke in his 60's and his mother died of a heart attack when she was 86. Another important factor with my father was that he smoked 3 packs of cigarrettes a day. I don't know any other medical information regarding him.

Avatar n tn Did they consider a left ventricle assist device? it's a small electric pump which pushes blood out the heart to give it a lot of assistance. This is pretty much a standard procedure now in the UK to give support until a transplant becomes available. I know a man who had a transplant 12 years ago and he's still doing great. When he recovered from his surgery he spent his first 5 years travelling the world, something he always wanted to do.
