"My heart attack experience"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I drove myself to A & E in East Surrey Hospital with chest pains, arm ache, feeling sick and dry mouth. I found out later that I was having a heart attack and had an emergency anngioplasty with stents fitted.

Dear Hilly21,

I am glad to hear that the cause of your symptoms was identified and that you underwent emergency treatment, it must have been a very worrying joourney to the hospital. I hope that you are well on the way to a full recovery.

Best wishes,
