Hi all, I've been back in the UK for a month now after living in Spain for the past 12 years, I had 2 stents fitted 18 months ago and had one stent collapse after 6months. I have registered with a Dr who is sending me to see a cardiologist and hopefully heart rehab as I have never been able to get fit since the incident 18 months ago, I never had a heart attack ( but was told I was very lucky not to have had one) but had been experiencing severe chest arm jaw and back pain while walking my friends dog for quite a few weeks, I just kept kidding myself it would go away, I was also getting these pains while watching tele or lying in bed. The medical system in Spain was brilliant and they fitted the stents within 3 days of what I and they initially thought was a heart attack. They don't do heart rehab in Spain and they just say walk for at least 3hrs a week. The thing I'm hoping for is to get back into shape as since my last episode I get so breathless and can't seem to do a lot, I'm hoping heart rehab will help get me fit again and just hoping that 18 months after the initial event it isn't too late. I'm excited about rehab as I need to feel a bit like my old self again instead of puffing and panting at the slightest bit of exertion. What can I expect from rehab? I also believe that one of my pills ticagrelor needs to be stopped as my last stent fitting was 6 months ago. I am looking forward to the appointments as I will be able to chat with the cardiologist myself instead of going through a translator. Sorry to bore you with all my details.
