My husband sadly died a couple of months ago from a ruptured aortic aneurysm
he was diagnosed with it 5 years ago and was advised to have surgery but after waiting weeks for the appointment date we received a letter saying it would only need monitroing
he attended 2 ultrasounds within the first year and then we had no more appointments come through and he never had another, sadly I think he thought out of sight out of mind
what I want to know is should the hospital have followed up on his ultrasound checks and has anyone else been advised to have surgery then all of a sudden the hospital changes their mind
i am really angry as he would probably have still been here if he was regularly checked
has anyone had a similar experience?
