On Sunday I began to feel unwell and my GP was very low so I called 111 and spoke at length to a senior paramedic who sent me off to A & E where they were extraordinarily busy and after very quick triage was put in obs ward. I had extreme breathlessness chest tightness lightheadedness. Had bloods taken etc and finally saw a dr at 10 pm after 6 hour wait! He wasn't happy that I had a fortnight before consultant appointment so sent me to 'hot' clinic. I went there on Tuesday and was seen by a very nice consultant who showed me my scans which showed tail end of infection nurse had told me I didn't have. He said I was to follow my own instincts and take abs when needed as bronchs know themselves. He has booked me in for another scan in 3 months time. I also have a collapsed middle lobe (right lung) and will probably have a bronchoscope to sort that out. However he thought the main problem was my heart problem and will discuss this with other consultants. He also told me that I must learn to factor these difficult days into my life. I came away feeling, in a funny sort of way, that I had 'permission' to feel unwell. In contrast spent a lovely day yesterday with my husband, daughter-in-law and gorgeous grandson escaping from the electrician working at home.
