Once she recovers from the heart attack she will need to have tests done to see if she still has heart muscle at risk. If so, she may need a stent or bypass. Her level of functioning will be determined by how much heart muscle was lost from the heart attack she had. Cardiac rehabilitation is an important part of her recovery. Good luck to both of you.
