Some of you may know that I had a ct scan in December 2017 and was phone by the cardiac nurse within 2 day to say I needed to start on aggressive treatment medication because have a CAD score of 3 wit obstructie disease in Ostrium and proximal LAD . He ra.g me and said I need a wire pressure angiogramme and will get an appointment with in 6 to 8 weeks. After 8 weeks no appointment so
I tried to carry on as normal going to work etc but it was too much and my doctor put me on leave for 8 weeks to rest until the appointment came through. I was then told by the hospital that they have closed all appointments for at least 3 months.
So I'm in a bit of a limbo land. I am seeing my doctor on Monday to talk about some side effects of the medication ...but my daughter had lunch with her friend who is a cardiac nurse in London and she was very angry that I have waited so long for the angiogram and said the wait in London is only 10 days .she also said I could and should get my doctor to refer me to one of the 2 hospital she suggested...does anyone know is this correct ? Can my doctor refer me to another hospital ? Has anyine else tried this ? Just getting very down and anxios waiting in limbo land.
