I had a mild heart attack about 20 years ago and hadn't been feeling bad at all. After tests I did have 1 stint put in, was out of the hospital the next morning and on an exercise plan with in a few days. Never was I bothered with any discomfort or anything. The only down side: I didn't like the Mr NO personality doctor.

And now you will experience a pain in the pocketbook.
And go thru the trial & error period of drug and food adjustments.
Be careful with statins and Brilinta.

^its not only the cost but the adverse (contradictions) affects that your body has to the medications.
Statins has a high incidence of muscle degradation or myopathy. Brilinta acidified my blood and brought on a gout attack.
