"Angina and stents"

About: Royal Bournemouth General Hospital

Anything else?

2012 I was diagnosed with angina, just a tightness in my throat. Investigation at R.B.H.found heart arteries 60% blocked. Back for insertion of stent ( three needed!). the proceedure took place as day surgery. It took a time to be back to my normal activity level. Now, at 86, i am fine, active, no longer feel "old" as I used. I cannot express how grateful I am to the doctor, his team and R.B.H. for giving me back my quality of life .
