Hi All

It’s been a while since I posted it’s been six months since my unexpected heart attack and truly trying to get back to normality

I attended a Cardiac support group today over a warm cup of hot chocolate.

It was great to share experiences and strengthen each other

It is based in West London and Central

Meet ups are planned every month so if you would like to attend or join the WhatsApp group please let me know

Best Wishes

Marie

I to had a scad in July I'm 51 fit and healthy it was such a shock they are treating me with medication as they said they couldn't put stent in am waiting to see scad specialist in Leicester in February but it has been such a hard thing to come to terms with as I'm so scared. It's going to happen again as I still get a fair bit of pain

Hi there thanks for your message it is very scary especially when your fit and healthy with no history my story too. I was told they needed to put a second stent in but I took medication for a number of months and I didn’t need another stent as it worked. I would speak to your cardiologist about whether you can see them any sooner and also have a scan to see if the problem has healed??? I hope it all works out for you best Wishes Marie

Hi I did yes so its worth asking your cardiologist for this as they can see all the vessels in the heart. Thanks
