    Does a heart attack always cause long term damage?

    Concerned about my 89 year old mother who had a minor heart attack about three years ago.

    Having a little bit of a slow heart rate and fatigue lately.

    She is going to see her cardiologist.

    Re: Does a heart attack always cause long term damage?

    If she has been stable for 3 years then she is probably recovered completely from that episode; however, heart attacks can repeat... is it possible she had another small one without knowing it?
    Definitely get her to her cardiologist...assuming she on medication of some sort, it may need to be adjusted or changed; or if she isnt on any, she may need to be. Good luck!
