Your Recovery Plan
You’ll work closely with your healthcare team to create a plan for recovery. This plan may include:
Tests to check how well your heart is healing
Treatments, such as medicines or procedures, to help your heart work better
Cardiac rehabilitation (rehab) to help make your heart healthier
Management of your risk factors, the things that put you at risk for another heart attack
Frequent follow-ups with your healthcare provider
You play the biggest role in your recovery plan. Only you can make the lifestyle changes needed to help prevent another heart attack.
Ask any questions you have and get the answers you need.
Ask for support following your plan, making changes, and learning new habits.
Know your options and participate in making decisions about treatment.
Follow the plan you've agreed upon with your healthcare provider. Always ask when you have questions.
