My husband has just had a heart attack a few days ago. He is very healthy, plays football a few times a week, is not overweight, does not smoke, does not drink excessively and eats well. His cholesterol is very low - our local nurse recently said its the lowest reading she's seen in years in her job. I just don't get why were going through this?!?
He is currently being medicated and monitored and they are giving him and angiogram and any treatment on Monday.
I'm finding that the nurses and doctors can't really tell me much outside of their immediate responsibilities. I've asked questions about recovery time, roughly how long until we're back to normal? will he get back to normal? what does this mean for the future? is he more at risk going forward? what will he be able to do in the next few weeks/months? but they seem to know very little about the next phase of recovery, only about the immediate here and now. I assume that's because there job doesn't really cover the recovery part.
This is why I am reaching out on here, to ask the people who have been through it or are going through it at the moment.
What can you tell me? what can I expect? how can I support him through this?
Thanks you so much in advance, I'm feeling quite lost and in total shock. Any help or advice would be very much appreciated!
