Hi all, - I reasonably new to the forum, my history is that for over ten years it appears my GPs had mistaken respiratory infections and chest pains along lack of mobility as a single issue, symptoms of a lung condition.
Having relocated one visit to a new GP and the diagnosis was adjusted to CHD - with Angina and atherosclerosis affecting the neck, legs and arms. I had experienced many extreme heart related incidents over the previous two years, the emergency referral to Coronary unit for assessment and I ended up with stents.
Two interventions down and we are now in the position of waiting for the conditions to deteriorate before the major surgery.
Sadly the prognosis is that the angina will be reduced but the other symptoms will continue. Had it been diagnosed earlier the progression could have been slowed but such is life.
Anyway life is as much about attitude as it is condition. Motto is make the most of today.
Thanks for reading this
