Hi, I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I am relatively new to having a cardiac problem having been diagnosed with angina on exertion only about 2 months ago. Prior to that I thought I was just suffering from indigestion and from getting old (58) and being unfit! Since then I have had an angio (not a pleasant experience!) and been put on seemingly ever increasing amounts of drugs. My BP and heart rate are on the low side which has been a problem but have settled a bit now.
Stents are provisionally scheduled for mid August. In the interim I would say my function is slowly deteriorating, although I am trying to walk as much as I can, within my capabilities. It is a scary time for myself and my family, having no experience of this previously, although looking at others experiences on here maybe things aren't so bad! My husband and I are now both on low fat/low cholesterol diets and are successfully losing weight
No questions just wanted to say hi and not be a stalker!
