Question: What is survival like for a person who is now 71 who had a triple bypass 4 years ago following a silent heart attack?
Answered by Dr. Saumya Mittal 24 minutes later
Brief Answer:
No Need to worry

Detailed Answer:
I understand your query. But to assess prognostic factors, current heart status should be know. Since you report to have silent heart attack now, I would have suggested an angiogram to know the exact status.
However, I would say that if you are on medications, I suggest you really need not worry.
Keep taking the medicines. Best of luck,
Dr Mittal
