Just a little from me today. Been absent for a while, a week actually. Had another cardiac incident. Minor heart attack this time, but still threw me for six. My husband and I had not been made aware even though I had had a triple bypass, I still had coronary artery disease. Nobody even suggested this to us nor did they make it clear after my surgery. I was extremely lucky this time because my heart muscle wasn't damaged and also I was actually at the hospital when it happened. I dread to think what the outcome might have been had I been at home on my own as I normally am. It wasn't because of anything I had or hadn't done right or wrong, it just happened.
My heart surgery was done for me in another part of the country in a hospital that specialises in heart issues. None of the staff had much knowledge of much else, and even though they were extremely good at what they did, I just wish I had had an inkling of what still could happen.
I felt that I needed to make you all aware of my latest episode, and to say as I always do please be insistent and get a regular heart check done if you are able. Push and push is my normal thing to say on this board and after this latest incident for me, I will be even more on the ball.
Please, please my friends ensure tht you are checked regularly for any signs of cardiac issues, especially if you have APS too. Not trying to scare you all, but I am here to share my own experreinces which span a very long time as you know, and I hope that I can help you by sharing of these things. We must fight to be looked after properly.
Take care everyone.
