Hi to all,
Following an un-expected call from my GP last Monday morning to drop everything and "Go to Hospital Now" I've had one of these cardiac recorders fitted in my chest. It was a little painful and the bruising is now starting to fade but at least I know that they are keeping an eye on my suspected arrhythmia, or are they?
In my earlier posts, I gave a short history of my symptoms and after my stay in the cardiac unit last week they seem no further down the full diagnosis route. I've been put on a small 2.5mg dose of the Betta Blocker "Bisoprolol Fumarate" which has made the world around me slow down substantially, feels very very weird and my heart rate has slowed significantly, especially at rest. I'm a 56 year cyclist so a resting heart rate in the mid 40's is quite normal when I’m fit but these drugs seem to have it down to the mid 30's.
The last thing the doc said is that I will be booked in for an angiogram and a review at some point but that they will keep an eye on me.
Question: Has anyone else had one these pieces of kit fitted and do you know how often "they" review or look at your uploaded results?
Thanks to all in advance...
