Answer by Dr. Patrick V. Suglia
“Massive heart attack” means that one or more of the blood vessels that supplies the heart became blocked and part of the heart stopped working properly. If people survive this and make it to the hospital, they will most likely need a bypass surgery to correct this. Stress can definitely have brought this on. If he is still alert, then I suggest going to where he is and apologizing in person. It would mean a lot to him.
