I took my partner into a & e cos he had chest pains. He was seen almost immediately and was diagnosed with atrial fib with a heart rate of over 180. They tried to being it down but were unable to keep it down. He was admitted and I went home to get him some things when I returned I noticed he couldn't see me when I wa on his left I told the staff I thought he had suffered a stroke. This was proved correct and e had had a mini stroke. On going back the next day what a shock to find e ad suffered a massive stroke and had lst the use of his left side. He regained consciousness 3 weeks later but was extremely poorly. He contracted pnuemonia and died a week later. Why could the massive stroke not have been prevented? He was only 63 !!!!
