As I was told. Some heart attacks can be reversed within 24 hours. After 24 hours, the chances are getting less and less. If he has been diagnosed correctly, he MIGHT get reversed already. And at that time the vessels might not blocked up to 95% to 100% that much! I think it is very hard to sue them. They can prove in Nov 2007, tests like enzymes and ecg are negative. At that present time, he wasn't having a heart attack. The heart attack developed later or after the admission. I was sent home on the same day. Diagnosed as having an anxiety. After a few months, the echo showed I have myocardiac infarction and severe hypokinese.
