Hi. I had two heart attacks this year, so I know how worrying it is for you both. After an attack it takes time for everything to settle down again. In my first few weeks I could barely walk a few steps without being totally breathless. Now I am walking for 2 hours at a time - practically at normal speed. If he is feeling chest pains then he should call for help - it is ok if nothing is really wrong. I called the paramedics many times in the first few weeks because of fear, anxiety and panic. If there is no reason not to, maybe he should be exercising every day - I mean small bouts of walking around. I think that maybe he was given advice about what he can do or not when he left hospital? Puffy eyes can be there for many reasons - not necessarily indicating a heart attack again. Maybe lack of sleep for example. If you are really worried about something call for help.

Take him to the doctors. Just do it.
