    come off

    I was wondering if 'come off' fixes the context below.

    1. The company coming off a $ 1 million deficit, has been in danger of being shut down.

    2. The doctor's told James who is coming off a cardiac arrest, to cut down on his smoking.

    3. Jacke coming off the flu, is feeling weak.

    2. The doctor's told James, who is coming off heart surgery [a cardiac arrest], to cut down on his smoking.

    It doesn't sound right with "a cardiac arrest".

    3. Jacke, who's coming off the flu, is feeling weak.
