Rosie O'Donnell: I Had A Heart Attack

Posted: Updated:

Rosie O'Donnell had a heart attack last week, she revealed in a blog post on Monday.

O'Donnell said that, after she helped a heavy woman get out of her car, she began developing chest pains:

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

...

the next day i went to a cardiologist
the dr did an EKG and sent me to the hospital
where a stent was put in

my LAD was 99% blocked
they call this type of heart attack
the Widow maker
i am lucky to be here

O'Donnell didn't offer any further details about what had caused the heart attack, or what her recovery plan will be. It's the second harrowing medical story that she's blogged about in recent weeks. In early August, she revealed that her fiancee was suffering from a rare kind of disease.
