I collapsed and was taken to hospital. I was very anxious. I went straight to MAU. The doctor came straight away & treated me well. I started treatment in MAU. The 2nd pacemaker was fitted on another ward – 46. All were lovely. Staff didn’t tell me enough about what had happened so I was confused when not allowed to go to the toilet. I later found out my heart had stopped. The male auxiliary nurses on ward 46 were very caring. They brought me tea when I needed it. I went home after 2 days.
