"Cardio outpatient clinic"

About: East Surrey Hospital

refered to see cardio consultant by G.P. appiontment was changed on me by hospital twice!! refered as I can't tolerate normal treatment/meds for hypertension due to side effects was told by by G.P about an operation to treat it instead consultant put me back on meds. Been on meds less than 2 days I'm already having side effects!!! It was in the letter from G.P and me telling her that I can't tolerate meds and I told her that the longer I'm on them the worse the side effects get. I'm not happy being put on meds when they don't argee with me. I wasted a morning by being there and I had to cut a previous appointment short that morning to catch a bus to get there in time. The worse is I've got to see her again at some point. I rather had the op instead of going back on the meds not sure what my G.P is going to say when I see him next month.
