My husband recently had a very major heart attack, please help him

My husband recently had a very major heart attack . As he was alone when the attack occurred, he didn't get to? hospital until that evening. They rushed him another hospital. He had a stent put in and later on a balloon pump. They weaned him off of the medications and he has been symptom free since. What are his chances of survival ?

there are several factors, if he went to a good hospital and has a good doctor and is willing to make the changes in his lifestyle the doctor will tell him to, then pretty good. my grandmother actually had several heart attacks and eventually died 20 years later.

I need some advice from one in the medical field preferably. How bad is this for a family member who has recently had a heart attack. Will the hospital most likely advise him to stop - surely so. Family (including teen kids) might not be enough to convince one who is stubborn. Its tough being on the other side. I need help and advice please. Thanks....
