Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection

SCAD Survivor

February 8, 2020

I am 56 and had a SCAD related heart attack in early November while in the hospital recovering from an emergent cholecystectomy. I continue to be off work 3 months out due to recurring chest pain. I have been hospitalized overnight twice for chest pain since. I am on the typical regiment of baby aspirin, metoprolol, and Imdur. I find anxiety to be one of my biggest hurdles. My cardiologist has assured me I will recover from this.
