In August 2016 I had a CT Angiogram after I had central chest pain and breathlessness upon exertion. The result was that the CT angiogram was completely normal. I was therefore offered no treatment, medication or follow up appointment.
In August 2017, I did an exercise test after I pressurised my GP (only with tears!) to re-refer me to Cardiology. It was an abnormal test and I was referred for an Angiogram. I ended up with 5 stents being fitted with 85% / 80% and 70% blockages in all three main coronary arteries. A mere 12 months after a normal CT angiogram and with exactly the same symptoms as a year previous.
When I questioned my Consultant about how this was possible, he advised that the CT Angiogram result was reported as normal but was probably a false negative result.
Has anybody else any experience of this?
I am quite shocked that this is even possible and that for 12 months I was at risk because of it. It seems impossible to me that a false negative result is even possible!
