Part 3

Posted 05-09-2005 at 10:30 by Mick

After suffering angina for about 3 years I was sent to BVH for another angiogram
But this time we got a private ambulance there and back which was great and it did not cost a penny.
The result of the angiogram was the same as the first and the consultant told me then that they were conducting trials using stents against bypass op and would I be prepared to go for the trial I said that would be ok and he said he would put me on the list.
But while I was waiting a complication set in I got an abscess on my lower spine, which was very painful and leaked most of the time.
I went to my doctor and he said they would not to the heart op until this was sorted out as it could lead to an infection, so he made me an appointment...

Part 2
After what seamed like ages I got a letter from Blackpool asking me to go for an angiogram, I did not know what to expect so Anne and me thought thatís ok we can have a look round Blackpool after, we had to be there for 10am which is if you know Anne just a little bit early for her but we got the train and got to south shore in plenty of time from there we got a taxi to BVH the staff there where very nice and new I would be apprehensive but put my mind at rest,
There were about 6 waiting for angiograms so we got talking as you do just nerves most of it I think
Then the nurse came round with the very fashionable gowns and a pair of paper underwear to put on.
We were taken on trolleys in twos to the x-ray area...
