Hi my name is Cath. I spent a total of 8 weeks in hospital just over a year ago now. 5 days in ICU then ward then 2 weeks later a day in ICU again. I have recovered really well. Had a blood clot and infection in my blood led to fluid retension then heart failure. I was given propranolol shortly before this episode so doctors questioned that but I think it was coming anyway as my shortness of breath was getting unbearable. Anyway thanks to the brilliant work of whole medical team I'm hugely lucky to be here. Still tryingto get my head round it. It's obviously much better now but at the start when I was discharged I just couldn't believe what had just happened. xx
