Hi All, you may have seen my last post about having to wait 6+ months just to see a cardiologist. Finally, earlier this month I had an appointment. A nurse did the ECG, blood pressure etc & then I saw the consultant. After taking my history & listening to my heart, they told me that I needed an urgent angiogram. The problem is that there is an 8-9 month wait. I can't afford to go private & it may seem dramatic, but I feel like I'm waiting to die. I have been feeling extremely tired, my heart feels heavy, everything seems to be an effort & work is becoming a struggle. ( They have cut my hours as I had a "funny turn" during one of my shifts ) I push myself to do things, because I don't give up easily & then end up paying for it later. I am still taking my medication, but still don't know if I can exercise. Any advice would be appreciated
