Hi, i was diagnosed very late with this condition. An acute GP noticed the murmer and was not convinced that all was normal. Test after test later it was confirmed. Months later i had a stent fitted which is 4cm x 2cm, I was not warned about the amount of brusing or the pain in the legs, 4 months later i am still having pain in the groin and the che chest. The cardiologist does not know why I have this pain that travels from my chest to my back and laft arm. MY left leg feels heavy and numb down to the foot which is freezing cold at times again. I have started feeling tired and fed up with the whol ordeal. Yes i know i needed this procedure but through choice i would never have had it - my active happy go lucky life style now revolves around this. When i get ill My poor GP has to send me in to the hospital as they are not well versed with this condition. Can any one tell me when will I feel well and strong again. Do you get back to normal? The hospital and the doctors have been wonderful but they just do not have the answers. They think it could be damage due to the surgery but not lifr threatening so at least that is something to be cheerful about. I would love to hear from other people that have undergone similar treatment.
