I have been feeling lightheaded and felt ready to pass out too often at work. I have a job where I stand all day long. I took myself to the emergency room one day after work. They admitted me to the Acute Care floor because of tachycardia. They attempted to do a Heart Ablation, but couldn't get the results they wanted and therefore, didn't do the ablation. I also went through a echocardiogram and a TEE. I was put on metropolol and then had a low heart rate. I was released from the hospital and am to go back in 1 to 2 weeks. The Dr's office was to call me to wear a holster monitor, but they didn't call and didn't return my msgs. I have no health insurance, and am applying for medical assistance, which hurts me to do, but my health is more important than my pride.
My son left a msg at work that I was in the hospital. When I called the first time to give them my status, the operations manager only cared about when I would be back to work. Every time I called in with my status, I heard how they would have to find someone to fill my hours. Now I am going back, not knowing if I have medical approval, and they have scheduled me for six days straight because someone else had to fill my hours while I was out.
I so dread going back, because I am still having problems, and obviously, they care nothing about me, just who will fill the hours. I was not on vacation nor avoiding my job. These are all women managers that I have talked to. This is all unbelievable to me.
