yesterday, after my tough weekend with breathlessness, my partner went home and said he would see me this weekend. He could only just have arrived home when I almost passed out cleaning my car, fell against the side, went inside as was heaving for breath and was then was very sick. This is a crisis point for me as I never even had ‘morning sickness’ when pregnant,
I phoned my partner who said enough.... and ushered me in his car to go to A and E.
I was seen in 10 minutes under the Triage system and in a short time had an ECG, blood tests, candula inserted, Chest x-ray, Oxygen levels tested etc. Saw a lovely doctor who said possible hernia but sickness and breathlessness coming from gall bladder problems and stomach swollen! am seeing general surgeon next month.
God Bless our NHS, I was so grateful and impressed with the kindness, efficiency and professionalism shown to me.
