After a real crap 6 months, and multiple tests, I got an email from my Consultant today which doesn't make pleasant reading.
I have just dictated 2 referrals for you.
1. To the sleep clinic at The Brompton because your sleep study showed evidence of obstructive sleep apnoea. You will hear from them directly to be set up with CPAP (Continuous Positive Airways Pressure: Small machine with a mask which sits on the nose and splints your upper airway open whilst asleep-google CPAP)
2. to the cardiology team because your echo shows that your heart may not be
pumping as efficiently as it should-this may be the explanation for why you
have been more breathless recently.
If I used the language I feel like, the moderators would be 'blue penning' every other word.
