Your Recovery Plan

Man and doctor talking.

You’ll work closely with your health care team to create a plan for recovery. This plan may include:

  • Tests to check how well your heart is healing

  • Treatments, such as medications 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

Your role

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.
