It's 99% likely I will have to cancel my lovely holiday to Aus/NZ in Feb as the cardiologist won't clear me to travel. I am still in denial but am hanging on to the very thin thread of hope that I get a cancellation for the angiogram and by some miracle they give me the all clear.

I am just waiting for a date from the hospital which will make the decision one way or another for me.

Oh no, Heather :( I know you have been holding out hope for a long time, and it ain't over til it's over, but how discouraging for you now. Is there a chance you could re-book the holiday somewhere down the road once your heart condition has been addressed?

In the words of my doctor 'I am a cardiac surgeon not a clairvoyant'. He did tell me that he has stated I would take any cancellations but even then I don't know if they'll give me a fit to travel letter and if I don't have one of those then my insurance won't cover me.

I am not sure what there is to gain by just posponing rather than cancelling. We will lose all our deposits anyway if we don't go as planned so we should try and get as much back from the insurance as possible.

What we have done is cancel the bookings that are refundable and are leaving those where we need to make balance payments as long as possible, luckily the first one of those isn't until the 23rd January,obviously if I get a date for the angiogram after that date then it will be game over.

If the angiogram is before that then we can wait and see if the doctor will declare me fit to travel in time to pay or cancel.

What was very clear was that no doctor will declare me fit to travel at the moment.  :(

i did it 3 1/4lbs off this week woohoo i'm so happy that's a total of 31.8lbs and a 13.9% total loss and I'm over 40% of the way to my goal weight so I celebrated by going to the gym. I have decided if I can get in to over weight from obese by Christmas I'm going to treat myself  to a upgrade on my fitbit charge to the the fitbit charge 2 so that is giving me soothing to push for

Well done sami that is an excellent loss.

I like giving myself a reward to, all psychological but it seems to work!

Have a good week.

Thanks Liam - trying not to stress, if it were just me it wouldn't be so bad but feel rotten for my friend.

Just going to go with the flow for now.  :)

Do they have you waiting for the angiogram for long? I was treated as an emergency and got mine done that very day, but I know what its like to have to wait for NHS wheels to turn! For my last surgical appointment I was told they don't "do" a cancellation list but I was told informally that they'd let me know, and then got a call two weeks later to go in that Monday. I think it's true that sometimes you do have to make an unpleasant fuss of yourself to be heard and seen unfortunately.

I hope you get to go on your lovely holiday!
