As some of you read I finally got to see a Lung Consultant last month, and he wanted tests. I wrote about there here;- healthunlocked.com/blf/post...
I received the results of my first test today, the echo-cardiogram. I can not believe that after months of my GP refusing to send me to see a lung consultant and telling me I was suffering from COPD,and that I was on all the treatment available and there was nothing more that could be done !! He finally agreed after letters from the nurses at my Lung Rehab' Course to send me to see a Consultant.
So the results explain my constant headaches, the shortage of breath, the low blood pressure, the low oxygen levels, the constant fatigue and low energy levels and I am still waiting for the lung function test.
I am not surprised at these results as I have been saying since my cancer treatment that something was wrong but nobody would believe me, they ALL just said COPD, nothing we can do !!
So now the test shows Severe left ventricular systolic impairment and right ventricular systolic impairment, I have Cardiac Failure !
Only taken since November to tell me this and believe it or not I am under the care of a Heart Specialist and have been since Easter 2013 when my cancer treatment started, no mention of Cardiac Failure from him, it took tests by a Lung Consultant to find this out ??????????????????????????????
