My dad had a prostate biopsy done, and suffered an infection 1 day after. He was given a heavy dose of antibiotics in the hospital, and had fluid in his lungs and the next day, had a massive heart attack. He had an emergency operation and a stent was inserted. He is still in the hospital recovering. he had a hear by-pass 20+ years ago and he is 74 years old. Why has this happened? Was the prostate biopsy more harmful than helpful in his case? Will he recover at all from all these problems?

What are the signs of a heart attack...I am 61 yrs old, have been having severe chest pains, heavyness at chest, pounding so bad that I feel it in my throat, no numbing of the arms, my concern is I am getting these symptoms when sitting or laying down. Today I ate and started with the pain about 45 min later so I am hoping it is heartburn. Other times it just happens suddenly. I am waiting for insurance approval to see a cardiologist.
