So after being taken to hospital by ambulance Saturday with a tempature of 39.4 and both feeling very unwell and chest pain.I was finally discharged at 3.30am with no way of getting home . Thankfully I hitched a lift because buses were not around till gone 4am and taxi had a long wait before picking me up.
So I've asked for my discharge notes (my right)
2 things! It says "poor R-wave progression in V2-V3,no acute ST segment change....What does this mean?
They said they heard a crackle in ambulance but when I got to hospital Dr's disagreed with paramedics so eventually at 3am I was sent to have chest xray. Saw the notes and it says
"Right lower lobe consolidation "
So I believe that means pneumonia?
So the paramedics trump the Dr again!
I was discharged by someone I really couldn't understand very well and told I had a shadow on my Chest/lungs And I will need to see my cardiologist asap to follow up?
It says at the end of my notes "he was provided safety netting,highlighting red flag symptoms.
So I'm now on 500mg Amoxicilin for 5days hoping this solves the problem whatever it is even though they have noted pneumonia.
I can't get hold of my cardiologist in London as he's away until end of September. My local cardiologist has not answered 3 emails I've sent nor has he's secretary.
So here I am with a dull ache over my chest that is there all day most days and wakes me and leaves me feeling vulnerable all day not knowing if this is my microvascular angina or part of the course of pneumonia? Feeling pretty isolated now so will be trying (and it's bloody hard) To get a doctors appointment this afternoon to then see a doctor to then ask for another xray by the end of the week because it feels like if I don't do all this myself nothing will get done if I can't even get a cardiologist to speak to.
You couldn't make it up!!!!!
