Have liver cancer and massive heart attack, having chest pain and moderate heart failure. Chances for cure?

My father has been battling liver cancer for 12 years now and a couple of weeks ago he had a massive heart attack . Now he has moderate heart failure and went back into the hospital last night because of chest pains and was transferred to another hospital to undergo emergency surgery on his heart. My mother won t answer my questions and all I want to know is is there any chance that he will be alright and what to expect?

Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum.
As you describe, he is a patient of liver cancer since 12 years, and now had moderate heart failure.
Most probably he will be done angioplasty, with keeping the stent in the carotid artery. It can save him from having a second attack, and the load over the liver which usually happen after the stroke.
If these 2 are successful,he will be lucky to have extension of life and comfort of living.
He should be careful, by avoiding the salt, fats, exertion etc.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.
