Good Luck CF

 

Just reading through all the post's and I have come to the conclusion  that we don't need our NHS. Well only some times,

notts nostagian's now are we the new NHS , most of us have ailments aches and pain's and it's nice to hear other members point's   of view. Plus if you have had same illness or similer you can disscuss it. 

You book an appointment with your GP.  Receptionist ask if you can give her an idea of your problem so she can take notes for GP.  You arrive at the surgery go in to see your GP. First thing he/she asked What can I help you with? why doe's the GP not read what the receptionist has written?

You know what the answer to that Mary, all you've got to tell your GP is, " Oh it's okay doc, I've had a word with Nostalgians and they've put me right. I just need a prescription for some more suppositories and another Covid jab"!

I wonder what his/her reply would be.  :Shock:

Four stents in coronary arteries plus another four in femoral arteries.

I would be worth more in scrap value.

Wow - hope you recover well mate. It would seem that you are the Captain of the Stent Club, with Benj the Vice Captain.

I'm lucky and back to normal. Did a hill walk on Sunday with no probs and rowing and cycling regularly, albeit a bit slower. Getting on with the landscaping project and enjoying it. Think I have learnt how not to put pressure on myself that leads to stress.

Hmm at 80+ one is almost tempted to say " about bloody time"... but I won't.   ;)

I wish I had a stent.  Maybe if my original heart attack in 1996 had been  'imaged', rather than just assessed via ECG etc.. they would have seen the state of the offending artery and looked at 'stenting' it.  But they didn't and I now have damaged heart muscle and a totally blocked artery which, even if by-passed would improve nothing.. as the heart muscle it supplied is now dead.

 

I dunno.. maybe stents and routine angiograms weren't available in 1996..

I've got some empty biro tubes if that's any good Col. Also got a long piece of bendy wire to do the pushing. Sure somebody would give me a hand.  :Shock:

Not the best of news CF but hopefully further test will prove to be better... It's easy for the doc to say don't worry, he's not on the wrong end of the phone! Fingers crossed for you..

DJ, Stents and angiograms were available in 1996 not sure about routine though. After a few problems in 96/97 I had numerous ECGs, monitors and an exercise tolerance stress test. Nothing was revealed and I was told to forget about it and just enjoy my life. A few weeks later I was back in dock and a wise experienced cardiologist decided to carry out an angiogram, a quadruple by pass was required. Unfortunately in 1997 the waiting list was 12 months for heart surgery even though my prognosis was not good. Luckily I had private health and it was done the following week.

After my initial tests, scans etc the results were not good news so I opted for treatment. I had my hormone medication middle of Dec to end of March, then 20 daily radio therapy treatments spread out over April. I have to wait until the middle of Sept till my body settles down then have a blood test to see what the results are. According to the oncologist there's a high % remission success rate for the conditions I was diagnosed with.

All my counselling and treatment was at the specialist unit at NUH NHS City Hospital. The attention, advice and help I got was top class, efficient and Staff totally patient focused and confidence building. I couldn't imagine anything better. All that was in the middle of a pandemic lockdown and with  infection precautions in place, it has to be very highly commended.

Well had my prostate biopsy yesterday morning, not very nice but needs must, the staff were very nice. They then got me in in the afternoon at nuclear medicine for a bone scan. They told me to drink a pint & a half of water before going in the atomic gubbins, which I did. Then I had to go in it again as my over full bladder blurred the image. Got to wait for results to come through, hating the waiting...

Make sure you don't start to glow green in the dark Colly.

I hope they give you an Avengers costume so you can be a hero.

Best of luck mate. Barrie.

After the treatment he is now all clear.
