Good evening,

So I had a heart attack in May of 2016.  100% Blockage of the RCD and 100% Blockage of the Cirrcumflex Branch.  The RCD has since been opened. 2 stents placed.  The other blockage is still there after 3 attempts. It is in a very difficult location and calcified.  My job is one that requires a great deal of service to adults, students and individuals that I supervise.  I have recently returned to work and I'm having a difficult time adjusting due to my cirrcumsatnces.  I'm basically freaked out by the facts.  Working 14 hour days, being a great father & husband of 4 kids at 45 years old.  I'm a mess to be honest.....petrified of what can happen.  Has anyone been in a similar situation and what did you do to get through it?  I have lost 32 pounds and the colleteral vessels are feeding my left ventrical apparently enough to warrant my return to workplace.

    Kerstin Wiggins,
    Thank you so much for sharing your story! It sounds like you've got a lot on your plate...I imagine there are many people here who can relate to these feelings of being scared and overwhelmed. If you haven't done so already, I encourage you to read through the Heart Attack discussions and post any questions you might have there. I wish you the best of luck and thank you for willing to be open and honest.
