My grandma had a heart attack and the amount of stress on her heart got higher

She s 86 years old .. she s been really healthy until now.. she could still walk fine, hear pretty well, and see well. She had a heart attack out of the blue.. her artery was clogged. There was damage to her left ventricle i think it s called.. but no brain damage . They had to paralyze her and sedate her.. they just tried weening her off the heart medicine but the amount of stress on her heart got higher :( does anyone know if this means she will probably die? Has anyone heard of people surviving something like this?

hmm.. that is a sad story, but there are chances that your grandmother will survive the situation. But it involves a lot money for sure. there are many good doctors in America, If the problem is blood clogged i know there are still chances. I learned about something that the doctors injected or they used lasers to unclogged the vesels. thats it just dont loose hope, and you know what it really depends in your grandmother if she can still handle the operation. I wish you peace and the best.. I will pray for your grandmother . chao.. Godbless
