Posted by Happy stent owner (as ),
Whilst cycling between Seamill and Ardrossan I experienced a severe tightening around my chest, difficulty breathing and a cold sweat. Passers-by kindly dialled 999, and thereafter my troubles were over.
The service provided by the Ambulance Service, Paramedics, Surgeons and Staff at Hairmyers Hospital East Kilbride was first class, and I very quickly became the proud owner of a stent, which I'm sure saved my life.
I was transferred to Crosshouse Hospital the next day for recovery, again by very professional and considerate Ambulance Service Staff. Recovery at Crosshouse was under the excellent care of Staff there in Ward 4F - XH, and I was released from care there on a few days ago.
May I take this opportunity to thank all of the staff involved in my care and recovery for the excellent attention they gave me. Thank heavens for the NHS and the dedication of its staff.
