That is so kind of Macca's family, enabling this site, which helps so many, continue into the future.
Macca will always be remembered by those who 'met' him through this site as someone who always put others first, always willing to help others with his sound advice which was gained through his own recovery from a sah. He had an amazing gift of writing his posts so eloquently, leaving the reader with knowledge and advice that came from the heart.
Hope it isn't signed by a doctor out of your sight.
I think you will have to dig your heels in and insist you see a doctor before your procedure.
In fact, had it been me, I would have refused to sign it until I had all the information.
I am a bl00dy minded person.
You've nudged my memory SM mentioning that - I signed the consent form on Monday at the assessment, then the nurse said she would go and find a doctor to come and explain it, then he would sign it.
She explained in minute detail about the actual angiogram procedure, but nothing as to the reason why.
She came back without a doctor, saying they were all on emergency cases, but a doctor would sign it on the day. So hopefully I'll get some answers then.
Why don't you ask before the angiogram. I presume you will have to sign a consent form before the procedure and that it will be explained before you sign.
That could be the optimum time to ask. They are questions that you need answering first.
