Heart Attack

34 yr male just suffered my second heart attack in a year. Had a stress test done got mildly depressed ejection fraction of 40 to 45% with inferior hypokinesis. How long do I have left? And is it safe for me to work on my feet in a stressfull work place or do I apply for disability?

Did you have a stent placed during the heart attack? Your Cardiologist will be able to tell you how much, and what kind of work you can do. I'm so sorry to hear this has happened twice. You are so young. I don't think anyone can tell you how long you have to live.Hopefully to at least 100! Thank goodness medicine has came as far as it has. They are coming out with new treatments all the time.
