What actions should one take after surviving a heart attack?
My mother recently survived a heart attack and had some sort of operation in Taiwan, I'm sketchy of the details but I know she felt it coming on and got to a hospital. She asked me what she could do to take better care of herself, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

She needs to rest and eat healthy. Although she might want to go out there and do a lot of things, but it might cause strain on her heart. So she needs to take it slow. Slowly, she can build up what she can do on a regular basis.
If there is a history of high blood pressure or she has it, then that needs to be under control. With diet, there may be major changes she needs to make, especially if she has high cholesterol. Anger and anxiety can also aggravate the heart.

Limit the types of food she eats and have her start a slow low rep low weight work out till she can start really using her heart

Diet and exercise.

to eat healthy and exercise!

Well rest for a while after the heart attack
Eat healthier
And some light exercise to start and slowly build up the activity.

I had a heart attack 12 years ago, I started doing my own research and found a book by Dr. Louis Ignarro called NO More Heart Disease. I followed the formula he presents. Today my cardiologist tells me I have the heart of an 18 year old and I have never felt better.

First of all My Deepest Sympathy To You and Your Mother.

Step One: Tell Her To Recover Slowly. The first thing that people want to do is hurry up and get on their feet. It is imperative that they take their time and heal please this is very important.

Step Two: Create A Diet with whole grain foods, such as Cheerios, Wheat Bread, fruit like Kiwi,

Step 3 When your mother recovers,per the doctors orders start rehabilitation, and make sure she exercises if not then she will may lose range of motion.

The key to her success is to not let a day go by that she is progressively doing something to get better. I also suggest going to the American Heart Association for constant updates on what to do.

concerned neighbor
try to encourage her to exercize gently and adopt a healthy diet.

Eat healthy

Here answer mine


I Watch Scrubs
Taiwan, eh? Is she one of those people who don't go to the doctor for 40 years and then get surprised when their health goes to the crapper?

You don't really need us to advise you on the diet and exercise. Everyone knows it. Now you get to see if she'll do it.

If she's already doing it, then the other part is regular visits to the doctor for her preventative care. 'Course it's a little late for prevention now, but people can recover from heart attacks. Unless they decide not to go to the doctor and get something else.

I think it's pretty funny when people don't go to the doctor until they get sick, and when the doctor diagnoses them, they say, "See that's why I don't go see you, you always find something wrong." A close second are people who smoke all their lives, or do drugs, or sleep around, and when they come up with lung cancer or HIV they ask, "How could this happen to me? Why me?" It's truly hysterical. I take it back, that's even funnier than the not going to the doctor thing
