Oh Jet
Thank you sooo much for all the information. My GP has arranged for full bloods to include colesterol, which I had taken this morning. I have an ECG arranged at my Gp surgery for Friday morning. The Echo I will have to go to a nearby practice for as the doctor there is a heart specialist, so I have to wait for them to contact me. If it is scheduled for the next week or two, then fine I will hav it done under the NHS, but if it is likely to be ages...I will opt for private as I can claim some of it back through a policy I have.

We are planning to land, all being well, in July 2010...as my eldest son is being allowed to sit his GCSE's a year early...so as soon as they are over...we will go. We need to be certain our visas are safely in our passports, ideally, by end of January then we can remove conditions for our house build to begin as soon as the ground thaws out enough.......if it all goes on after end Jan...it could cost us more money.

I wholeheartedly agree with the fact that it is better to know and be treated...than to drop down dead one day........so Thanks again...really appreciate you taking the time to tell me everything.

However in October CIC medical division got back and said that they required an ECG and Echocardiogram. I completed this back 2 weeks ago.

The ECG these days is 30 secs if that, and you can get it done with the GP - saves the £40 approx private health charge. The Echocardiogram took around 20-30 mins. Your top off and a gel applied to your chest (no need to shave for men) and lie mostly on your side. The consultant then moves the instrument over certain regions of your chest. The last part you lie on your back and he presses the inst. by your throat and also in your sternum. I didn't see the images on the screen but you can hear sucking noises, which is the heart pumping.

He told me to be at ease, but could see that I was anxious. However, all went fine and is clear. Just waiting now for CIC - although my DMP will only get the report to send this week as she works 1 day a week.

To me knowing that my heart is good makes me happy in myself. How many people are walking around and collapse suddenly due to a heart defect that they know nothing about. You see fairground rides which say don't go on if you have a heart condition - - how many people really know ?

At least the positive thing for you will be that your health is known and you can get treatment for any conditions and live a healthy life. That to me is just as important as obtaining the Residency.

Hope all goes well and your echo is fine.
