Hi, sorry about the long post but 5 or so years ago (I’m now 42) my leg started to swell so I went to my GP and he told me to go to straight to hospital and he would phone ahead. My blood pressure had gone up to 220/180, after and echo my cardiac output was down to 20% and my kidney output was down to 40%. After medication everything has seemed to return to what I thought was normal. While I was in their I was diagnosed with sleep apnea which I am now under treatment for. A year ago I went for a follow up echo that my GP asked for and didn’t hear anything back. On Friday I asked my practise nurse on my annual review if the scan was ok and she printed it off for me saying it was my body so I was welcome to read it but mentioned some times it’s can be not what you want to hear. On reading it, it appears that I have a small ASD but this is the first time I’ve heard of it. Now reading up but am quite shocked that this is the first time I’ve heard about it.
So many questions. I’m trying to get a GP appointment tomorrow to see what’s going on.
