Update

Hello all

Just thought I'd update those of you that are interested. Cut a story, I will be having a pre op on the 4th May prior to having a double coronary heart bypass and mitral valve repair at Papworth hospital. Things happened very quickly since my GP said I had a heart murmur.

I now carry hydrocortisone to inject in case of an emergency, all due to long term use of steroids, but I'm stable on 7mgs of Pred.

Regards to all

All the very best for the surgery. If you have to have it done Papworth seems as good a place as any!!! Hope the bypass is as successful as my mum's was and that the mitral repair all goes well too. You'll feel full of beans afterwards (one the soreness goes).

Papworth’s a great hospital. My sister had major surgery there and I was so impressed with their caring and professionalism.
