From the time I entered the hospital waiting room to the cath lab, it was 40 minutes. They knew it was a heart attack but I refused to believe it until I was in that lab having stents put in my heart. About an hour after having the stents put in, I was in the Cardiac ICU and my children were there crying. Even though 5 years have passed, I can't forget the day and I never will. There is always the fear it will happen again. I take meds now which includes a Bayer aspirin regularly. Bottom line, ladies - don't let a doctor tell you how you feel. Even if you think you might be having a heart attack, go to the ER. Better safe than sorry! Remember, it isn't like you see on TV. Women have different symptoms than men and we tend to wait longer. Have your heart checked ASAP."
