6 months ago I went into 3rd degree heart block the day after my hip replacement op. My pacemaker was fitted 4 days later which also caused a pneumothorax!
it was all quite a shock and whilst I've recovered pretty well I'm yet to receive the home monitor I'd been assured by the Cardiologist.
I've had one check up at the PC, and was told there's a world shortage.
I wonder does anyone know the current situation and whether it defers across the country? Do most people have the reassurance of a home monitor?
My next apt is at the end of September but I've been told they're not expecting any.
I appreciate your time in reading this, thank you.
