My husband had a mild heart attack during the week. he is having a Angioplasty today. Ive not been able to go up & see him for a couple of days due to me having the flu. Plus have daughter home with 4 wisdom teeth out Tuesady.
How long would he be recovery for fater in hostpital?
And what should I expect any help would be great Thank you
Recovery time for angioplasty is pretty minimal. Assuming that he might get a stent installed or just an artery expanded, more than likely he will have to spend one night in the shop. Recovery at home usually involves nothing more than taking things very eas for a few days or a week, and then full speed ahead.
Thanks jim62. husband did not end up having a stint. he did have the Angiogramme thou he was told 2 arteries was alittle blocked.But not enough for a stint.
Been told to watch his diet & has now been given cholestrol tablets.
Thanks for your feedback
