"After stenting Dr. visited after 24 hours."

About: Solihull Hospital

First about dignity, I don't know why was I examined by nurses who were yet in learning stages and was asked to show my skin all over my body and they even asked me to show by bum naked and I saw them giggling too. This happened first time in my life. Next. I had a painful procedure and was given morphine during stenting , The doctors gave a visit after 24 hours. Whole afternoon and night I was just given Paracetamol for angina pain. I have seen angiography procedures many times and clearly can say the equipment for getting images is out dated as the result was very blur and the minor arteries were not visible.I will ask patients to kindly have this procedure done in Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Even after stenting I have the angina pain at same level and frequently. Will have to ask for other hospitals opinion.
