Rosie Odonnell - Rosie O'donnell Suffered A Heart Attack

Rosie O'Donnell has suffered a heart attack.

The talk show host and comedian experienced the health problem last week and is now recovering at home.

The 50-year-old star credited her survival to quick Internet research on her painful symptoms and a Bayer aspirin she had seen recommended in ads.

She wrote on Monday (20.08.12) in her usual poetical verse form on her blog: ''Thank god/saved by a tv commercial/literally.''

Rosie said she had a stent inserted after doctors found that her coronary artery was 99 percent blocked. In a statement her representative Cindi Berger told website People.com: ''She is now home and resting comfortably. She is very, very lucky.''

Rosie added online: ''They call this type of heart attack/the Widow Maker/i am lucky to be here.''

Earlier this month she shared the news that her fiancée Michelle Rounds was diagnosed with desmoid tumors, a very rare affliction.

She said her own health problems began this month after she helped ''an enormous woman'' struggling to get out of her car in a parking lot in Nyack, New York.

A few hours later, her chest ached, both arms felt sore as if they were bruised, she became nauseous, and had clammy skin.

She wrote: ''maybe this is a heart attack. i googled womens heart attack symptoms/i had many of them/but really? - i thought - naaaa.''

She said that hundreds of thousands of women die each year of heart attacks and that many never dial the emergency number.

Rosie continued: ''By some miracle i was not one of them. Know the symptoms ladies/listen to the voice inside/the one we all so easily ignore/CALL 911/save urself.''
