Hello to everyone
I've had my appointment with the cardiologist and he has diagnosed me with Angina as well as artery disease, I've been prescribed statins, although my heart condition doesn't require surgery (luckily), the statins, nitrate tablets, and GTN spray along with the life changes will help prevent it getting worse.
However, he's concerned regarding my breathlessness (taking into account my history) which hasn't improved much since stopping the fags, and I'm still struggling with everyday tasks. He suspects COPD, I'm very frightened and am being referred to a lung specialist. I'm using fostair and ventolin at the moment.
It's a lot of changes & adjustments to cope with and I keep a diary so I've some structure to everything.
We all have specific reasons for giving up smoking, along with our lives and circumstances being different. Thinking of everyone on their own individual journey. I don't post much, but I read lots and am grateful to you for the support it gives me xx
