Hi. I'm Maggie. I've had treatment for breast cancer including mastectomy, chemo and radiotherapy to the left chest wall. I've had AF for a long time for which I take warfarin. Recently I've had some chest pains intermittently, generally when walking uphill. I do lots of exercise including tennis and rowing and can usually play these sports without pain. However last week I had an episode during tennis. Saw my GP and ended up in the local hospital that day. The consensus seems to be that I have angina so am now taking a low dose beta blocker and a statin as my cholesterol level was 6.5. I'm having a CT scan next week and also have an appointment with the chest pain clinic this week. I'm feeling a trifle overwhelmed at present but want to make the right decisions about meds etc.
