Hi Im brand new to this forum ( in fact any forums) just wanted to share my story.
On the 22 September I had posterior, perineum and anterior repairs,Apparently I stayed in post op for a wee bit longer than normal as I had low blood pressure, I was comfortable and in no pain but very sleepy.I was sent to the ward around 5pm where unusually I was still on oxygen. I have no idea how the nurse came to be speaking to me but I can just recall telling her I didnt feel well and had a pain in my hand which was hurting my arm. Long story cut short pain went to chest. This lovely lady whom I have no idea who she was hit a button and I can just recall being surrounded by professionals ie nurses and doctors whom saved my life. I had suffered a massive heart attack. I was whisked down to the cath lab and had the first of 3 stents inserted. Im now 7 weeks since being hit with this double whammy. Luckily the op probably saved my life as if you are going to have a heart attack the very best place in my case was whilst in hospital. I am finally back at work on light duties. It was interesting to find out that the repairs to my bottom bits have taken longer for me to recover from then my heart.
