I have heard that the effect lasts for 6 months, and the second dose can be taken after six months.

Hi Doctor, 2 days back my aunt was admitted in hospital as she had a minor chest pain. the doctor gave her streptokinase injection and after that her blood pressure went down. The doctors were trying to bring the blood pressure back to normal, but my aunt died during this process. (The reason the doctors gave was that she had a massive heart attack). My question is has my aunt got the attack due to fall in blood pressure. Please advice

My mum was admitted to hospital after a stroke and the following morning we received a call asking us to go to the hospital. when we got there, we walked into the room and the curtains were drawn around my mum. she was laying on her back with her eyes closed. i asked my dad if she was going to be ok and he replied i think she s dead . i noticed an injection on the cabinet next to her bed, my dad said this was probably used to help revive her. she died of a heart attack and we got to her bedside 2 minutes after she passed. why did the hospital call us, can they tell if someone is going to have a heart attack? and what would an injection have been used for? could this of been to revive her after a heart attack? thank you

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here... I am 25, and recently was released from the hospital for having a stress and virus induced heart attack. troponin levels are around 16%, and after 2 days in the hospital I was released, and am on medication, with follow up with my cardiologist in a month. I am not planning on using it anytime soon, but will I be able to use marijuana again? I use a vaporizer to avoid additional harms caused by smoke

Had heart attack 8/19 (my cardiologist sent me to be admitted immediately), angioplasty w/drug emitting stent, follow-up visit, intermittent mild pain/pressure (feels almost like muscle cramp), chemical stress test last week. He says finding show 75% blockage in an artery but says inconclusive where the blockage is. No symptoms of pain. So why can't he know where the blockage is with all the pics done during the chem stess test. He suspects it may be the stent reblocking. If he isn't sure where the blockage is in the first place then why suspect the stent. Why wasn't this caught 8wks ago when the angio was done?
