Rosie O'Donnell suffers heart attack, gets stent

By Associated Press


NEW YORK >> Rosie O'Donnell says she suffered a heart attack last week and is "lucky to be here."

The 50-year-old comedian detailed the experience on her blog Monday, saying sudden nausea, aches and other symptoms pushed her to do an online search for "women's heart attack symptoms." She took a few aspirin and went to a cardiologist the next day.

She says an artery was 99 percent blocked and a stent was inserted.

O'Donnell writes in a kind of verse on her blog. She says: "Know the symptoms ladies/ listen to the voice inside/ the one we all so easily ignore."

The comedian recently hosted "The Rosie Show" on the Oprah Winfrey Network. It was canceled in March.

A ‘close encounter’ of the health kind! Recognizing the symptoms of a very frightening attack is essential.

She should have called 911 immediately and not waited until the next day to see a doctor.

The 'waiting unti the next day' usually results in death. Go to the ER. You'd be amazed at the VIP treatment you get when tell them you think you are having a heart attack.
