Heart Attack - Aftercare

Close follow-up with healthcare provider is essential after heart attack.

Most people are able to return to their normal activities after a heart attack. People who had an uncomplicated heart attack can return to most of their usual activities within few weeks if they are feeling fine and asymptomatic. Regular checkups and tests are essential after a heart attack to see how the heart is working. Strict adherence to lifestyle changes, taking medications as directed by the physicians, and adhering to the cardiac rehabilitation program are essential to prevent future attacks.

The doctors may ask you to undergo diagnostic tests such as an exercise stress test at regular intervals. These tests can help diagnose the presence or progression of blockages in your coronary arteries and plan treatment.
