My Father had a heart attack on 1st december at 4pm, but he did not had any other diseases (no BP, No diabities) because of that initially he did not believed that it is a heart attack. while we made him to go hospital for check up after 6 hours at 11 pm , blood reports and ECG showed heart attack (trop i and ckmg) but he was totally fine. treatment started with initial blood thinners and other injections. doctor told to have angiogram at that moment. He did not agree and had a argument there and made us take him home instead.
Next day again we requested him and made him agree for second opinion. We went to fortis escort heart institute. they confirmed it is a heart attack and started their treatment. They kept him in observation he was totally fine that day and was feeling ok , but doctor told us to have angiogram. we and doctor made him agree for that and next day morning he had that done. which showed blocked LAD and rest arteries are totally fine. Doc did not gave us any option like we can keep him on medication etc. he directly did the angioplasty and drug eluting stent was placed in mid LAD. Father came out of the cath lab at 10.30 feeling OK and he was OK till 1pm as mentioned he got hypotensive and then at 3.30 he became unstable and had cardiac arrest while they took him from icu to cath Lab. they revived him but again he had cardiogenic shock and expired at 8.30 on 3rd december.
we are devastated as already we had already some problems in family and out of sudden we lost our loving father. He was OK while he walked towards the hospital did not had any problem but after angioplasty he did not lived. I am not from medical background but just wanted to know was there any possibility we could have saved our father ?
if no Angioplasty would have done , as it was past one day and more the heart attack came and he was alright.
He was a very innocent ,hardoworking and caring person. never did anything wrong with any one. We as a family do miss him and i feel guilty that i was not able to save him.
We would have saved him only on medicines ?
