I am on all kinds of meds as I am in heart failure with an ejection fracture of 30. I had to go back in the hospital because I was still having chest pain. Turns out I had scarring in one of my other arteries from the stenting and was at risk for another heart attack. I had to be readmitted to the hospital. The doctors wanted to then do open heart surgery, but only if the heart muscle that was damaged had any life to it. I had to have a 2 hour MRI only to find out the muscle was dead and there would be nothing to save- so no reason for open heart surgery. My doctor felt it was best to just stent again. I was in and out of 3 hospitals for 28 days. My husband slept on a cot every single night. He was my rock. I will celebrate 4 years post heart attack on Oct 20th, which happens to be my wedding anniversary. Weird, right?
Overall I feel great and although heart transplant may be in my future, I continue to live life to the fullest. I was the picture of perfect health, low blood pressure, in good shape, worked out during both pregnancies. My heart attack was directly related to my pregnancy. I had a dissection post-partum. I have always wanted to share my rare story. I am alive today because the Lord wanted me here on earth to be with my family and raise awareness of this very serious disease that continues to kill women every day. My doctor has put me on aspirin therapy and I choose Bayer. I take Women's Bayer Aspirin regularly to prevent another heart attack. I stand behind your brand and product and am thankful it's available for people like me."
