      The other day around lunch time it had gone down to 98/57 and I had not taken a medication in the morning. I take 50mg losaratan at night.

      I hope that your angiogram is a quickie! My first one took ten minutes. I had felt him pushing the catheter in for a bit then he went over to the monitor that that I could not see and started fiddling about. I asked when he was going to start and he turned the monitor towards me and said 'Watch the action replay'

      The next time I was not so lucky.

    Just a quick update on my angiogram as from my discharge summary.

    Main Diagnosis: Admission from TBH for rehab following Right MCA infract and right TACS during diagnostic angiogram. Thrombolyed successfully.

    in plain English: a Stroke caused by the angiogram

    I was lucky to have been in the hospital so taken straight to MRI scan then to be Thrombolysed

    after 3 days at the acute stroke ward I was sent to another stroke rehab. Hospital (  total hospitalisation 8 days, discharged to day , 45%

    paralisis in left leg and  35% left arm.

    I was told the odds of a stroke from angiogram 0.05 %.

    with having being part of that persentage, should I do the lottery LOL )

    A big thank's to all the stroke team for the fact that I can write this tonight.

      yes derek they finished it but did not have time to put the antibiotic in the canular

      ended up with oral thrush and I was told that I was lucky as I was in the hospital wich meant treatment was started within the hour.

      they are trying as much Physiotherapy within the 6 week period of fast recovery because after that recovery slows right down.

      And you were right there was lots of panic mainly because early Thrombolysis is a must.

      At the pre asessment before I had my pacemaker fitted they went through the things that could go wrong and said if it does you are in right place. Not quite, they fitted the wrong type of pacemaker. When the technician came round later in the day to check it and give me my pacemker card I looked at it and said this is a single chamber one it was supposed to be dual chamber. 

      When I had a colonoscopy there was panic when my BP went down to to 40/29 and heart rate 30. They started pumping drugs into me and gave me water to drink and put me on a drip. Later I found that I was in AF.

      Just had a phone call to be fitted with a Holter monitor for a day on the 8th of October ( don't know why as they said that the heart had been sorted ) I'm hoping it's just part of the follow up after the stroke.
