Hi, I'm new here age 69. Waiting for a triple bypass diagnosed at my local hospital 6 June on a treadmill and an angiogram on 27 June. Now I'm waiting for the referral to a London hospital and the first appointment there.
The angiogram also showed that I'd had this condition for a long time. By my reconning at least 5 years. That's about the time I've been cycling and I always had to rest if I had a pain. Investigation back then found I had duodenitis. So it was a shock to learn I had angina.
The stress testing was due to a new GP who didn't think the previous investigation thorough enough and sent me for the stress testing.
I've just been told that travelling abroad is not recommended while waiting for this surgery and am cancelling my trip to Italy. It's weird as I flew to California in April and drove to Ireland in June.
