Hello everyone, a little advice please from anyone who's been in a similar position. Long story short hubby been having chest pain, also across his back into left arm and jaw , GP refered him to hospital , had blood tests etc decided on angiogram so went in for it yesterday. Whilst doing procedure his heart stopped so chest compressions and then completed with stent in artery. This artery was 90% blocked, two more arteries 50% blocked , next step heart scan to decide weather to place in more stents or to operate and do a heart bypass. We are in total shock as had no idea things were this serious, he is still in hospital ( he's 51) and I will be making my way back in there soon to be with him. My question is has anyone experienced anything like this and if so could guide me through the next steps, all very scary and worrying as totally unexpected. Thanks in advance. Ps , otherwise fit and well, doesn't smoke or drink , works very hard manually 12 hour days, been telling him to slow down for years but typically never listens to wife ! Also slim but muscly with minimal body fat.
