Well, I rang the surgery yesterday at 8.15am, and was told that a doctor would ring me back. I asked about what time that would be and was told within 2 hours.
Ten minutes later the phone rang, and it was the doctor. After asking me lots of questions about my pain, he said he`d like me to come up to have an ECG test, and made an appointment me for me for 8.50 a.m.
Off I dutifully went, and within a few minutes of being there I was called through for a nurse to do the test. Then back to the waiting room for a few minutes before I had to see another nurse to have my blood pressure, pulse and other tests. Back again to the waiting room to wait to see the doctor. It may be a little wait, I was warned. But within a short time, I was called in to see the doctor. After more examination and lots of questions it seems its possibly either to do with a muscle, or could be angina. That I didn`t like the sound of, especially when he said to me, if you have the pain for more than 20 minutes dial 999. He then arranged for me to go for tests as the N&N hospital today.
So, I`m feeling pretty scared.
I rang a church friend yesterday, and she is going to come with me as I didn`t feel I wanted to go on my own.
But, I am very impressed with the prompt and efficient service I received from my surgery.
