Saw Dr W, the GP, this morning. He listened to my chest and said he heard some crackling, but without elaborating. He wrote an order for an ECG, and prescribed a diuretic to deal with a swollen left ankle He thought the beta blocker might be responsible for the slow heart rate (~50). But whatever is causing my loss of breath, the pain in the right chest and general fatigue, its unlikely to be anything to do with the medication. We aren't going to find out what the x-ray showed, if anything, until the consultation with Mr R on Thursday. There isn't anything vital in the diary next week, apart from the celebration next Sunday of the anniversary of the Springhill Buddha Grove, the first of its kind in the English prison system.
