Not just Heart attack!
I'm A 54 yr. old female and find it hard to believe all I've endured.
In 2003 I had breast cancer and am now 6 yrs. cancer free! But had to have complete hysterectomy in Mar 2009 due to possibility of uterine/cervical cancer. Thank you, Lord - no cancer was found.
Went to post surgical check up for hysterectomy on Aug. 14, 2009 and received clean bill of health, although I thought I was having anxiety attacks from hysterectomy.
On Sun. Aug. 16th was watching a movie, got out of chair to make dinner and felt terrible burning, squeezing sensation across chest and between shoulder blades. First thought was anxiety attack, but then I told my husband I needed to go to ER - didn't feel like anxiety.
To make story short, had a mild to moderate heart attack, 100% block in right main artery, atrial fibrillation and now have pacemaker as heart was pausing when trying to concert to sinus rhythm and damaged from block.
Just wonder if I'm ever going to feel better, so tired all the time and weak. Trying to follow heart, diabetic diet. Have lost 50 lbs since had hysterectomy. I know I'm very lucky to be alive but very scared of another heart attack. I had a pretty active life - now wondering if I'm going to be able to return to work.
Are these feelings normal????
