Advice from the sages please.
Spent ten days in our local Coronary Care Unit, being discharged almost two weeks ago, having been through loads of tests to gauge reaction to various medication to balance my AF, low blood pressure, SOB and LVSD.
A family holiday in Zante was booked many months ago for twelve of us including children, partners and grandchildren.
The consultant, on discharge, said that I "may" need tweaked during the following weeks but I've been fine so far. I asked, amongst a million other questions if I could go on holiday and had a very noncommittal answer, but it definitely wasn't a definite "no".
Called with GP clinic yesterday for blood tests and mentioned the holiday in passing. Two hours later while in hairdressers I had a call from her to say she had mentioned it to the GP and he was emphatic that I shouldn't travel for a month.
I'm upset, but want to do the right thing re my health and my family. If I have to stay home alone, so be it, but it would be a shame.
What would YOU do?
It's the weekend so I can't speak to the consultant. Should I go up to CCU on Monday in the hope of seeing her?
