How long it will take to cure if someone had a massive heart attack?

Would a hospital discharge you 24hrs after having a massive heart attack?
I have a 'friend' who constantly lies....he was taken into hospital with chest pains....and let out 24hrs later....he says he had a massive heart attack....i said surely you'd be kept in longer if that was the case, he says everything goes back to normal after something like that.....the pink dischage sheet also said 'Diagnosis/treatment.....indigestion(?)' written exactly like my friend definately making this up....i only ask cause he's got children who he's repeated all this to that are really upset thinking their dads gona die.....thanks.

NO way would they - he would have spent a week on the cardiac unit having more investigations and tests also they would have discharged him on medication and arranged follow up appointments. Also they wouldnt let you out so quickly because your at high risk of having another heart attack which if the first one was massive the second one would probably kill him. If the discharge sheet says indigestion then it probably was indigestion. How cruel to his kids!!!!
