She had a hip replacement 22 years ago and now this hip is giving her some difficulty. She has type 2 diabetes, slightly high blood pressure and takes a statin. Description She feels shaky inside. Lots of stress this year grandaughter died ages 32. Seen last week in hospital - told she would have more tests to go through but they would culminate in an angiagram. Told of the worrying aspects of this procedure. Told if she would like to cancel the test then this would be fine. Mum sometimes cannot swallow her food properly and has some pain when she does this. Can and angiagram help her to have a better life?
