Friday.....awoke about midnight , crushing pain in my chest,very nauseus , sweating , really sweating .
The nausea disappeared so i downed a couple of Nurofen and made my way back to the bedroom. I suppose the pain lasted about twenty five minutes then it disappeared as quickly as it had arrived.
Ten minutes after settling down ,the pain returned.I just thought it would disappear again.
Seven hours later , although the pain had eased a fair bit ,it was still present so i decided to ring the medical advice line who immediately sent an ambulance.
Saturday ,Sunday , Monday saw me wired up to machines , providing blood samples , answering questions and peeing into bottles.(confined to bed)
Tuesday...2PM Angiogram. Was bricking it and told the doctors that i was terrified. They promised to keep me well sedated and were true to their word. I was even brave enough to watch what was happening via the screens.
90 minutes after starting , they had fitted two stents
Just have to return to have another stent fitted,but already i feel like a new man. My blood pressure when i entered hospital was 80 ish over 64 , it is now about 100 so has increased by 25%.
