Hi, I had a quadruple bypass back in October 2014, after the op I was really ill and had SVT which required 3 electric shocks. Anyhow to cut to the chase. I was on Amiordarone 200mg for a fast heartbeat, this was stopped in December 2014, a few weeks after this I started getting the odd chest pain, breathlessness and my legs began to swell, never had this before the operation just Angina. I have been back to the doctor and Cardiologist, they are ordering a 48hr mobile ECG and an Echo. I was also told I had Peripheral Vascular Disease and need to see a vascular Surgeon, I am awaiting a visit to have my leg Blood Pressure taken.
Last night was horrendous I had 4 lots of severe chest pain which I know was Angina, had it too long previously for me not to know. I took some GTN spray 2 puffs and the pain vanished after 3 minutes and left me with a banging headache. I am also on numerous Blod Pressure tablets because they cannot get my BP down. Rhe Doctors say I am not getting Angina and refuse to even consider it, although I know from research that some operations do not entirely work. Has anyone had experience of this themselves or in their families?
