    Johno:

    I had a stent put in near the heart and a valve put in my heart to keep it pumping in two separate procedures last month. Both were from the groin used with local anesthetic and shoved up a vein. didn't feel a thing mate, apiece of cake. The worst thing was having to lay flat on the table. The second worst thing was in the heart valve op, they shaved off the ten beautiful hairs on my chest that I have been curling and using hair conditioner on when I shower, grooming the mongrels for about sixty years, and getting a new hair added every decade or so. Now my chest looks like billiard cue ball. No matter how I pleaded and tried to explain the work I had put into them the bloody woman took malicious glee (shadenfreude) in denuding my chest.

    No pain mate, weird, but it's a doddle.

    Cheers, Rodders.

    Went back to the hospital today to see who was right about the stay or not to stay that is the question, whether tis nobler in the mind to accept what they say, or by taking arms confuse the buggers.

    Well as it will most likely be a Stent it means an overnight stay.
    Thankfully we are only 30 mins drive from the hospital so my good lady wife will be there to pick me up...……...I hope!!!!!!!

    But Rodders and John thank you for all the info on it, very helpful.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Went to see my GP today to get all the paperwork related to my 'situation.'
    Here in Oz we get full copies of all medical paperwork, X rays etc, should we request it.
    Her in doors likes to have it all on file, keeps it in a box for reference.

    He then told me something I never expected.

    Yes they may well be a blockage, but it may also be a kink in an artery. Something I have never heard of before.
    He explained that some times extreme exertion can cause a kink to form, bit like kinks in a hose he said.

    The I thought of it, the Kinks just where did they go, now I know.

    Then I remembered,
    A sunny afternoon, and Lola went to watch Waterloo Sunset and said you really got me.

    So kinks or blockages, the next instalment will be after Octember 31st.

    Watch this space.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Kinky eh?? What does your wife think about that?? Seriously all will be well. We all look forward to hearing about the capers you got up to in the hospital. Better be careful they may put you on a "most wanted" list!!
