"very good"

About: The Heart Hospital

Anything else?

I arrive at the hospital from Whittington hospital around 09.30 and was taken upstairs and was given various tests. I was told that the clinic was busy and that I would need to wait until 4pm -5pm before going down to surgery. They took me down to surgery and you I was in surgery for approx 1 hour and 10 mins. I was then taken to the recovery room for approx 1 hour. I advised the nurse that I was very hungry and thirsty but was advised I would need to wait a little longer. I was taken out of recovery room, and taken onto the ward in a room given food and refreshment. The consultant who did the operation came in to see me, and I asked about how the surgery went and what was happening. The consultant advised me that he had put a stent in as they could not do anything more during the operation, because I had blocked blood vessel. He said he would like to see me in two months time to deal with the blocked blood vessel. I felt that the advice from the consultant to take the route of dealing with my blocked blood vessel was the lesser route compared to a bypass which I understand that the bypass is much better health wise and lasts longer. I was then sent back to the Whittington hospital and discharged home. When I got home I then called the hospital heart hospital to make the two months appointment. When I got there I had some tests with the nurse and then went to see a consultant who looked at the heart x-rays he felt my heart was not looking to bad. I did feel the food not that good; the staff was brilliant however including the doctors were very kind.
