coronary heart disease

I have chd since 2009 and was not diagnosed until 2011 when I had a 4 bypass surgery. Recently I suffered a mild heart attack and was given a diagnoses of Non Q MI and Angina, unstable. My question to you would be if with these diagnoses____ can I go back to work as a welder? I have been a welder for 36 years and that is all I have been trained to do.

Generally speaking most people are able to return to work after a heart attack. Usually people are able to return to work several weeks after the event. I would recommend cardiac rehabilitation given your recent heart attack. You should also be seen by your cardiologist prior to returning to work.
