Hi I was due to have a LTHR on 23rd Jan 2019. After taking the preload drink early that morning and arriving at the hospital with my little packed bag, the anaesthetist detected a heart murmur. To say I was shocked was an understatement. I was more upset about not getting my hip done. Home I went downhearted after booking in via my G.P for an echocardiogram. It was a three week wait before the scan and then results came back. They were normal!!! No recorded heart problems at all yippee!! So I am having my left THR on the 14th May 2019. I had my right THR 3 years ago now and have been having such severe pain on this Left side for about a year and half. Cannot wait to be free of pain. Trying to sleep worrying about my heart and with hip pain is no fun at all!
