Heart disease has many life-long implications. After a heart attack or surgery there is a recovery period and rehabilitation is needed. For many types for heart disease there are ongoing symptoms that require ongoing treatment and changes in lifestyle. An important part of living with heart disease is to prevent existing heart disease from worsening and causing further cardiac events such as heart attacks or strokes.
