Post angioplasty
Hi, it's been 4 years since my dad had undergone angioplasty, no recheckups done. He is unable to stop his habit of smokeless tobacco chewing. I wanted to know if this will risk his heart again. He does not listen, so is there a way to suppress his craving for tobacco medically? He recently also experiences tooth pain. He tells me there is no relation between tobacco chewing and heart attacks / tooth pain. Please advise.

Hello, I went through your query, I can understand your concern towards your father , yes continued tobacco intake either as smoking or chewing could seriously affect you father's health condition or heart disease. Some cardiac pains could present as tooth or jaw or neck pain, so please consult your cardiologist at the earliest. There are several rehabilitation centre available which helps to quit bad habits, psychiatrist will help him with that. Before that please consult your cardiologist at the earliest.
