Hello To All Fellow CMT Sufferer's >>>>
As part of my ongoing exercise routine, my wife and I go walking 4/5 (3-5K) days a week to
assist me with my CMT 1a / Diabetes Type 2 / Hypertension / Sleep Apnoea / I have now reached the age of 67 years:
Over the last six months I was getting steadily worse whist walking - shortage of breath / moderate chest pains: Washing the car / mowing the lawn became very hard work: Went to see my G.P. and got blood tests back within 24 hours: Sent to Cardiology Chest Pain Clinic for further investigations: Failed on "treadmill" test, also a bad ECG reading: Next a "echo cardiogram" x-ray showed no damage to heart muscle:
Two days later a "angiogram" x-ray revealed that I had two blocked/narrowed arteries, not enough blood/oxygen getting to my heart: Strong medication + nitrate spray prescribed until my options are decided ?
1) One artery blocked STENT !
2) Two artery's blocked TWO STENTS !
3) Three artery's blocked TRIPLE BYPASS is standard:
PLEASE ALL BE ON YOU GUARD, AS ANGINA CREEPS UP ON YOU GRADUALLY !"
