In June 2015 at 10 pm I started to have pains in my Left breast. A little uncomfortable now and again going through to my back. All night all I wanted to do was rub my Breast. In the morning I was sick.
Thinking this was the sickness virus the Grandchildren had-had. Then after a shower rang the Doctors appox 9 am. Could not get an appointment. Then my daughter said go to A & E. We arrived there at 9.20am- was seen by a doctor who could not find what was wrong.
Then a nurse came in and asked what was happening. I explained- the nurse put me on an ECG machine then repeated the test. Then said has anyone told you what is happening! You are having a Heart Attack, the nurse gave me an Asprin and pain relief. Told me they were Blue Lighting me to the Heartlands, where they were waiting for me. I was taken into theatre and had 2 stents put in where there was blockages.
I owe Trevor So much. Thank God he was there. I had excellent care at Good Hopes A&E Excellent care at the Heartlands. Then returned to Good Hope CCU where I also had excellent care. I owe them my life. I have a second chance. NO money can buy that.
I just hope my after care is as excellent. I would like to say a big thank you to all the Doctors Surgeons Nurses, Staff Nurses for all your care. You were Golden. Also Trevor from A & E you deserve a reward as you were the one who started the ball rolling, Bless you All.
