Hello, I am worried about my fathers health and could use some help, He is over weight, He weighs about 22-25 stone (139kg-158kg)
June last year he asked me to come help him go shopping, Just before we left the house he dropped down and had a heart attack in front of me, Adrenaline kicked in for me and i remembered some random video i watched on guide on Youtube about giving CPR, Which pretty much saved his life. He was not breathing or anything for over 4 minutes, He did however finally get a pulse and become semi-conscious before the ambulance came to take him to hospital.
After that i decided to move back in with him just in case this happens again and if it does i want to be there and make sure it is not in front of my younger 2 sisters, which are out of the house most days due to college/school.
So here is what i am worried about, He is 43 years old, He plays wow and has done since early March 2005, up to 16-20 hours daily with short breaks for food/toilet and sleep. On each expansion release he has played without sleep for 3 days, He drinks on average 6 cans of 500ml (3 litres) energy drinks every single day, He smokes and does not work. He is the guild master of a very high ranked guild which i think is one of the reasons he is so addicted.
I've asked him countless times to go see a doctor and he keeps telling me there is nothing they can do for him so why should he bother, I've asked him to come gym a couple times a week with me, He declines. He will not seek any professional help and I am really worried he may become really ill soon and die.
