Rosie O’Donnell has taken to her blog to reveal that she suffered from a heart attack last week, and is lucky to be alive.
The 50-year-old actress and talk show host claims that she had several of the symptoms after doing a quick google check, but opted to just take some asprin for the pain rather than check in with her cardiologist.
“[I] became nauseous/my skin was clammy/i was very very hot/i threw up. Maybe this is a heart attack/i googled womens heart attack symptoms/i had many of them/but really? – i thought – naaaa.”
After finally seeking out a doctor, she was transfered to the hospital where she had a stent put in.
Rosie continued, , “50% of women having heart attacks never call 911 / 200,000 women die of heart attacks every year in the US / by some miracle I was not one of them.
“Know the symptoms ladies. listen to the voice inside / CALL 911 / save urself.”
