Recovering from a Heart Attack
Your heart is responsible for pumping life-giving blood throughout the body. When your heart stops, cells all over your body can die from a lack of oxygen. Heart attacks are devastating, but many people can return to a normal lifestyle after their first attack. Thus, it is important to make recovery your main responsibility following a heart attack.
Often, a heart attack can come without warning. However, there are some medications that have been linked to increased chances of heart attack. One such drug is YAZ, also called Yasmin or Ocella. If you have taken any of these medications, then suffered from a heart attack, you should contact a YAZ lawsuit attorney from Williams Kherkher today at 800-761-3187.
Lifestyle Changes After Heart Attack
After a heart attack, you will need to get two weeks to three months of rest. However, it is also important for heart attack victims to become more physically active. Thus, you need to balance physical activity with rest. If you get tired during the day, you can take a nap to help keep you healthy. Also, it is of utmost importance to avoid tobacco, as this can greatly increase your risk of having a second attack.
Many heart attack victims suffer from chest pain called angina pectoris following a heart attack. Usually, this tightness or pressure hits after exercise or a large meal, and it should go away very shortly. You should always let your doctor know about any pains that you may have, but especially if it gets worse or occurs after little to no physical activity.
A heart attack is a traumatic, emotional event for your family, as well as a physical hardship and stressful time for you. If you have suffered from a heart attack due to YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, you may be entitled to financial compensation to help you recover from this difficult time.
