IPF AND ANGIOGRAM DNOM
I have just had a Angiogram takes about 35 mins at 85 it was not to bad except for the contrast dye which was unpleasant but bearable when I found it was not going to get any worse, what did get me was it was so cold with all the doors open and just a flimsy hospital gown which nearly always chokes me, I had to wait while they cleaned up the blood afterward from the floor. The good news is apart from told to take simvastin and an apirin substitute which I gather costs the NHS £1.25 a week. They are not going to do anything, why bother?
Any way what I wanted to share with you is that after feeling realy crook for 48hrs and having fingers feeling numb I realised that the feeling in my arm and chest was from the catheta and not angina and after drinking lots of water to disperse the contrast dye 48 hrs later I am starting to feel a lot better, hopes it helps anybody who is worried about it
