Heart Attack after Delivery
I'm not sure why I'm posting this, I guess in hopes of someone being able to tell me it turned out ok for them. I don't wish this on anyone ever but if you have something similar happen, please if you can, let me know.....it feels like I'm alone in this. Even if it's not a heart attack just something that happened to you after pregnancy. By the way I'm 33 years old and my baby girl is my 3rd child.
Long story short....I delivered my baby girl May 21st, slight chest pains started May 24th. My pulse was at 31(got down to 29 at one point) and BP was 153/83. My pulse at normal was in 60-70's and BP 106/60. Was put in hospital for 4 days 3 nights. They put me on a BP med because my heart wasn't pumping exactly how it should but other than that they couldn't figure out why and sent me home. On May 31st at 9:00 pm I suffer the worst excruciating pain in my chest and both my arms. I am rushed to the hospital and told I'm having a heart attack. I have a stent placed in the right side of my heart.I stay for 3 days 2 nights. 2 weeks later I suffer chest pains again and have another stent placed in the same artery but at the top where the other one is at the bottom. They said they believe all of this was caused from pregnancy/labor. They named it SCAD(a tear in my artery).
Thanks so much for reading/listening. I haven't really been able to talk about it and I know worse things happen but I'm just struggling emotionally with this and I ask for your prayers. Thanks again.
