Hi I am feeling very scared and down about a heart attack I had just over a week ago, I was sent for urgent angioplasty and received 3 stents to LAD and 1 stent to right artery. I am constantly worried about dropping down dead of another heart attack and think that if this has happened at the age of 42 it doesn't bode well for a long lifespan. I'm shocked it's happened this young. I've read that 25% of ppl have another heart attack within the first year which to me is not very encouraging. I have instantly stopped smoking, eating well although I did eat a lot of healthy foods before but also ate junk food at weekends in addition to drinking too much. I am having to force myself to eat now as I have very little appetite and weight is dropping off. I feel hopeless and wish I could turn back the clock. I feel sad that I have caused this through unhealthy lifestyle mainly smoking and being sedentary. I am also experiencing burning sensations in chest and stomach and have been told I have pericarditis too which is hampering recovery. I'm worried that the chest pains are due to more than just pericarditis. I guess I need some light at the end if the tunnel, I feel lost and alone in all of this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I love reading other people's success stories.
