Hitch and Frenchay....

by The Squirrell 27. September 2012 22:32

I had been feeling a bit tight chested, heart pounding,

and taking an "extra" big breath now and again...


I went to the GP and ended up in Frenchay Hospital !


After a night in, lots of blood tests, echo and ECG, I

was left in a bed until one of the obviously overworked

doctors came to explain that although all the test showed

abnormalities, it may be that's just "heart trauma" post transplant?


QEH have been great and are seeing me Monday... Keep your fingers crossed

Team Transplanters!!....

About Matt.

My name's Matt. I was born with a congenital heart defect which hampered me in my youth, and sadly became a terminal conditon recently, and beyond the (amazing) care of the BRI-Bristol Heart team.

In 2008, my condition deteriorated, to a point I was happy to see Xmas 2008. I had prepared to die.

Then in January 2009, a late night phone call from QEH-Hospital Birmingham changed my world, when they offered me a heart transplant, if I could get there pronto!!

6 months on, after a rocky start, I am still alive, thanks to them!

Read on to see how my new life is taking shape, and my adventures to date!....
