Recovery time after heart attack

What are my chances of getting back to my normal life? 

The quality of your life after a heart attack will depend on how much of your heart muscle has been injured and the location of the damage: your dietary regimen, medications, and exercise are all determined by the condition of your heart after the heart attack. Many survivors will be able to return to a fully active life as long as they control their risk factors and follow generally accepted disease precautions. For some, the damage may be so extensive that total freedom to live as full a life as before may be unrealistic.
But more and more medical research findings show that most individuals with a heart muscle that has been damaged can resume full activity by the fourth week after the episode, and this includes sexual activity, physical activity, and return to work.

Throughout the entire recovery period, bear in mind the value of the psychological support of a spouse or a close friend.
