I had a heart attack 3 months post partum when a blood clot blocked an artery in my heart. They are assuming this is because of my pregnancy and the fact that your blood clots so much more easily in the 6 months following delivery. I had a catheterization and they found no plaque or other heart disease, just this blood clot in a small artery. Thank goodness that it did not cause any damage to my heart, but I am now on blood thinners and a lot of other medications to keep this from happening again.
Has anyone else had this happen or ever even hear of this happening? I feel very alone and even my cardiologist has only ever seen this once in 20 years. I just wondered if anyone else has experienced this and how they are being treated. THANKS!
