I’ll try and keep short.
Dec 2018 had 2 stents into LAD / 95% blocked. Was told I had severe Angina, no heart attack. Left with a minor block (30%) to a non dominant artery. Would treat later if I had any symptoms.
Did my rehab, started playing football. Mostly i feel ok, occasional bit of shoulder / chest discomfort. It’s almost a shadow of an ache.
Did a treadmill stress test in June - had a very slight pain and readings were a little strange at peak exercise. But machine was unreliable...so organised as an ECG stress test.
Did ECG stress test - upto 150 bpm with no symptoms. No letter to follow up so I relaxed. Came off Beta Blockers as they made me very cold. Now finished Clopidigrol.
Last week decided to chase the letter up and turned out that no one sent the results to the consultant. It’s not the same one who did the procedure or treated me initially.
Letter came quickly - and was a bit of a shock. I’ve been signed off, but if read properly, sounds like I have some damage to the heart.
Can someone here interpret what it means? I don’t want to google - confuses and panics me even more.
Any help / clarity much appreciated. My head is spinning.
