A little update on my visit to the consultant. I was pleasantly surprised to have my appointment brought forward three weeks. Met with the consultant yesterday at Wythenshaw hospital very nice Dr he explained to me that if all the test went well it would be valves not coils fitted the reason being valves were more successful. Think it's going to take quite a few weeks he just asked me a series of questions checked my oxygen level had a little listen to my chest a further appointment was made for a spirometry and breathing test which is going to take 90 minutes ( sounds rather intense) plus a shuttle walk test also at some later stage scans to be done. The consultant was very honest and said that not all people are suitable which is why quite strict tests are run and that it's not without its risks as there have been deaths Ouch but 80% of opps have been successful I have also been asked to do a rehab course to make sure that I would be At my best. I didn't ask him to go into detail about the process or opp at this stage rather wait to see if I am given the go ahead first and to give me time to absorb each appointment as it comes around.
I found I was quite anxious about the whole thing family and friends are all so very supportive which is great but I am so nervous now it is becoming a reality if I am given the go ahead I shall deffinately go with it, but rather nervously which I am sure is normal. That given chance to a better future on the horizon.
Will post again after next appointment
Hope your all keeping well I am enjoying all your post and lovely chit chat as always.
