Hi everyone firstly I’d like to apologize for this being the first time I’ve written in although I’ve been reading lots of your posts for two or three months . It’s amazed me how many different lots of heart problems we have between us. I’m 53 and due an angiogram in two weeks after being told I’ve got dilated cardiomyopathy, eschemic heart disease, and a leaky mitral valve. The positive comments I’ve read on here and the fact that things could be worse( I’m still fairly stable and mobile) have kept me going on the dark days. I’ve certainly learnt patience and to put my trust in the professionals and apart from the length of time it’s taking I’ve got no complaints, and that’s only because of their workload! Anyway I’m trying to go with the flow and not get too anxious, but it’s the results and next stage , the fear of the unknown that’s keeps niggling away at me, but knowing I’m just one of many and that I can post any queries/worries is comforting.
I’ll let you know how I get on, and I also have an travel insurance claim( for flights only) that were booked after breathing problems but before heart diagnosis, so could be interesting. I’m not holding my breath, no pun intended. On that note I’ll wish you all the best and say bye for now and thank you all for the posts I’ve read
