Rosie O’Donnell is recovering at home after suffering a heart attack last week.
After experiencing chest pains — and Googling heart attack symptoms — O’Donnell, 50, got herself to a cardiologist. Doctors discovered her coronary artery was 99 percent blocked and she underwent a procedure to have a stent put in.
The talk show host revealed the news Monday on her blog.
“I became nauseous, my skin was clammy, I was very very hot, I threw up,” O’Donnell describes of the symptoms she experienced, adding that she took a Bayer aspirin after seeing it recommended on the Internet.
O’Donnell says it’s a “miracle” she’s still alive, writing “Thank God, saved by a TV commercial, literally.”
“They call this type of heart attack the Widow maker — I am lucky to be here,” she added.
In August, O’Donnell revealed her fiancee Michelle Rounds was ill and had surgery in June to remove rare desmoid tumors.
