Hi guys, me again,I could do with some advice. After 4 years of tiredness, chest pains and constant severe hot flushes (13 years after menopause) .
I was finally sent for a ct scan which printed the cardio nurse to phone me 2 days after test to go straight to the doctors to start immediate treatment.
The initial diagnosis is a CAD score of 3 with possible Severe obstructive disease in the Ostrium and proximal LAD .
I was put on
Bisopral fumarate 5mg
Aspirin 75mgand GT spray when needed
I was told I would need a angiogramme with wire pressure test to see where to go next with my treat ment and the appointment would come through in about 6 weeks ...
Now obviosly due to the current crisis with the NHS i have not able to get an appointment as yet ,I spoke to the cardio nurse and as much as it is needed they cannot fit me in .I understand the reasons and am happy to wait but in the meantime the pains in my chest and my fingers turning blue are getting worse.
I am travelling into work and back everyday and it is taking it's toll I have just had 3 days off and work are now asking if I'm going to be ok to come in next week !! I don't know I have been trying to do the best by everyone .I teach at a uni so I am timetables to students ,I do understand they need commitment but I can't give it to them .
What I'm asking is ..is it better to go to the doctor and get signed off until I get the hospital appointment? Is this even something a doctor would do ?
At least then the uni could get someone in to cover me ...
I just don't know what to do ,it is making me anxious and really worried about my future .I want to just stop and stay in bed with the covers over my head .
