Ihad a rear end accident which an hour after I realised I thought was a heart attack but was in fact an aortic -dissection type A ,I drove myself to the hospital on the Gold Coast in excruciating pain ,this was diagnosed thankfully very quickly and I was operated on within 5 hours by Dr Gilbert Ford a life saver I was in intensive care for 2 days then in Hospital for just over 2 weeks ,and 3 months off work ,then a further 3 months part time a long recovery ,I am now living a normal life with check ups once a year ,but I survived something that I have been told on many occasions is very lucky
