I have my meeting with the specialists on June 9th regarding my results to the angiogram and treatment options. I briefly spoke to the nurse and got a little information already - but she emphasised (as many people on here) that I should be ready with every and all questions I may have. There are so many different possibilities and outcomes due to so much being unknown that I thought I would write down a load of questions and just ask the ones most appropriate to whatever information they tell me.
The nurse also gave me login details where I can access and see medical notes… I found that I was supposed to stop taking citalopram immediately (this was a couple months ago) - but nobody told me! I am just coming off them and onto a different medication now. I also found out that the specialists can’t agree on whether I can continue playing football or not - this is a huge deal as it is my job, but also a HUGE part and love of my life!
The point of me posting this - is please let me know if there are questions I am forgetting to ask?!!
Sooo my first questions are:
- Is my new medication (Mirtazapine) definitely okay for me to take?
- Can I continue to play football? If ‘no’, why? If ‘yes’, what are my limitations (if any)?
Regarding results and possible treatments:
How much blood has wept? Can you tell how long ago? How worried are we about this? Can it move to a dangerous area?
If GK or embolization, how long until I can have it? How does that day look? Steps after? When and how physical can I be after? Side effects? Risks? Odds/percentages of success?
Please let me know your thoughts guys - what am I missing?
