Stan so sorry to hear that, so different to my Doctors practice, just over 3 weeks ago I had to ring my go surgery, I have had two knee replacement surgeries in the past 12 months and had a dull ache in my chest for about four days, evidently you have a heightened risk of thrombosis for about 12 months after surgery, I have had a clot on the lung in the past, asked if I could have an appointment or speak to someone, explaining my situation, she put me on hold and was put through to a doctor within 2 minutes who looking at my records told me to ring 999.I was whipped off to hospital had all test, Xrays etc, thankfully everything came back normal and they said it was a viral infection but amazing speed and care all round, within a week I was fine but it was repeatedly told what I did was right as it could have been a clot as all the signs were there. |
I hope neither of you have that trouble again Stan
