"My heart bypass"
Posted by alan23 (as ),
I am now in my 50s. At the time I felt ill I was in my late 40s, I was in work and I had been feeling a bit sicky and unwell all day no chest pains at all when I got home my partner said she had to be at our gp surgery for her appointment so when I was there the doctor seen me he said he would do a ecg on the safe side then out of the blue he said you need to go into hospital as you have had a small heart attack. Anyway the cardiology ward looked after me very well the only complaint I have was that I had to stay connected to a monitor for 10 days waiting for a bed to come available at the uhw for me to have a angiogram. Other than that the Royal Gwent hospital was marvellous all the doctors and nurses were very polite and professional at all times. When I was transferred to uhw I had my angiogram and was told I needed a double heart bypass again. I was put at ease everything was explained very well to me and I was looked after excellent before and after my bypass. I am again experiencing more problems with my heart but I am not worrying about having to maybe go back in to hospital as our consultants' and there staff are probably among the best there is
