Hello everyone, glad to find this group. I am 55 years old and had a heart attack, 100% blockage in one artery and a stent put in on June 15 2015 a little over 1 year ago. 2 months later had a kidney stone attack, CT scan, and a aortic aneurysm was found. Passed that one and had another kidney stone a month later where I was put in the hospital where my bladder was flushed by means of a Foley catheter, thought I was going to have another heart attack putting that thing in. Once out of the hospital I haven't been back to a urologist yet although I have had more kidney stones since but made it through them so far. Just went for my 1 year ultrasound and my aneurysm is about 4.5 centimeters. The reason I joined the group is i took a zpack a couple of months before all this started. My sister was in the hospital for Pneumonia or whooping cough. I had visited her while she was in the hospital. After she was released I got a call from the county health nurse saying she was sending me a prescription for the zpack as a precaution since I had been exposed to my sister at the hospital. She said it was up to me whether I took it or not. She said I could go ahead and take it, wait and see if I had any symptoms and then take it, or not take it at all. I took it about a month later cause I had a cough and sore throat. Got better I thought but within a couple of months had the blockage in the one artery and the aneurysm found 2 months after that. I would like to know if the zpack caused it all? 2Any input or support would be greatly appreciated. Thanks sincerely
