Hi, my father, aged 70, recently had a heart attack and was diagnosed with three blockages. Due to his age and other health factors surgery was ruled out and one stent was used to clear out the main blockage(the other two were too difficult to clear using a stent). What is the chance that he will have a relapse and within what timeframe.

Thanks,

Prathap

Chances of your father to get another heart attack are big but we can't predict when exactly he will get another heart attack.
