My husband suffered a heart attack at age 47 due to 100% blockage in main artery resulting in significant damage to his heart(25% working). He was sent home 5 days later after a stent placement. He began swelling up to 20lbs of excessive fluid on the 8th day. After taking him to ER and then enroute to transfer to a different hospital he went into cardiac shock. The perimedics and doctors worked on him for 40 mins before regaining a pulse. He lost total brain function and organs shut down on the third day.
