Sudden chest pain and stent procedure due to 100% artery blocked

Posted , 2 users are following.

I am 44 years old with high BP and Diabetes, eat green, no smoke, no drink and do exercise almost 5 days per week but three weeks ago, I had chest pain which I discounted as indigestion and then eventually vomited but I stayed whole and the next day I went to ER and they told that I was having heart attack and put one stent in one of the artery. This whole ordeal was a big surprise given I have been cautious. Now I have accepted the fact and taking as much as precaution. I have taken 3 weeks off from work. I heard that it takes 4-6 weeks to recover, should I take more time off? Overall I feel Ok but feel my chest area is fragile as I feel some pinch here n there...I told to Doctor and he told that its the recovery...
