In brief: Feel encouraged!
Depends on the size of your heart attack, how fast you received treatment and how compliant you are with medications and following a healthy life style.
Feel encouraged, you can do things to positively improve your health. Talk to your doctor about it.

In brief: Variable
Heart attacks are like pickup trucks: some are itzy-bitzy and some are huge.
Regardless of size, getting treatment, whether that's intervention (with a stent) or surgery (cabg), as well as using medications and changing life style to minimize the risk of a future heart attack will determine your long term health.
