"My angiogram"

About: Royal Sussex County Hospital

Anything else?

I went in for my second angiogram on 7th March 2013, as always I was met by friendly staff who explained the procedure.

I was lucky to go in first, although the news wasn't so good as I have to have a pressure test with the probable outcome being a quadruple bypass, I was told the hospital should be in touch within 2-4 weeks, unfortunately I am still waiting some 6 weeks later, however this shouldn't detract from the excellent care I received in hospital.

I do feel where the heart is concerned and the apparent severity of my condition, the doctors words not mine, that I would have been called in by now, I do understand how busy the hospital staff are though.
