Hi I have just found out that i have a heart condition CHD after being in hospital for 6 days for tests, I have to have a heart bypass end of Jan beginning of Feb and I am so scared everyone keeps saying to me you will be ok, they know people that have had it done and how well they are doing but it isn't making me feel any better, not at all, not a little bit. I have to have a bypass on one tube and stents put in the other 2 if that is possible. We have heart disease in the family, my mum died of a heart attack, she suffered from angina for years, my eldest sister died of Cardio Myopia and her doctors at Papworth said we all should get it checked, the drs at the hospital said it wasn't genetic, at Papworth they said it was, so we haven't been checked out regular and this makes me angry because it may have been picked up sooner. Im at home now I cant walk far before im out of breath and all this has only come on while i was in hospital before i even got results. I am suppose to be on rest doing nothing exerting or be in stressful situations but that is impossible, i have 2 teenage sons one is absolutely fantastic, the other isn't so much, then on top of that its Christmas I know one of them will help with Christmas dinner etc but the other definitely will not. Then they are going to dads for a few days, Im not suppose to be on my own but i think i will need it. I am still in shock same as everyone i know and have told.
