Hi all, I went into hospital for am elective angiogram after having some breathlessness for about 3 months when walking up hill. To my surprise I was not allowed home and was told I had to have a bypass as some of my arteries were up to 95% blocked. It took me a while to emotionally come to terms with what was to happen and I am now 4 weeks post operation (triple) and each day gets better. Does anyone who has experienced this have pounding in their head, not a headache, but the feeling of the heartbeat in my head and ears? The BHF site has been invaluable for information and support, thank you so much.
