I got to the hospital in good time yesterday, and we found the department quite easily, once we`d managed to find a space on the car park.
Having reported in at the correct desk, it wasn`t long before I was called in to have an ECG, then back to the waitng room.
After a fairly long wait, thankfully I had my friend there to sit and chat to, or at least for her to do most of the chatting thus keeping my mind off of worrying somewhat, I was called through again for lots of questions and other tests. Back to the waiting room.
My name was then called again, to go and have a heart scan, that duly done - back to the waiting room.
Finally we were called in to get the results of all the tests, and that revealed that they think it is Angina, but I need to have a further test, on another day. And depending on the result of that, I may need another test or something at Papworth - that really has alarmed me.
I`ve now got 5 different tablets to take each day - but, as I said to them, I don`t mind how many tablets I have to take, so long as it sorts things out.
I am just so grateful to my friend for being with me and coming with me at such short notice. and also for the kindess and help of all the medical staff, whose manner and attitude gave one confidence in them.
My big worry now, is what or how to tell my Mum.
