Celebrities With Endocarditis… Help!

Recently, I received an interesting question about bacterial endocarditis. The question was, “Adam: Do you know of any celebrities with endocarditis?

It’s a good question. I remember when I first learned that I would need heart valve replacement surgery, it helped to know there were many, many, many, many public figures who had experienced heart valve surgery and continued to live a full, dynamic life afterwards.

Bacterial Endocarditis Infection Of Heart Valves

As for a particular celebrity with endocarditis (the heart valve disease), I unfortunately do not know of any. Sorry.

That said, I didn’t give up. So, I did what most people would do – I “Google’d” it. :)

Unfortunately, I did not find anything linking celebrities with endocarditis. Again, sorry about that. However, if it helps you… Here are some celebrities that experienced severe heart valve defects and had to have either heart valve replacement and heart valve repair surgery.

Arnold Schwarzegger Heart Valve Surgery

I could reference many more… But, I think you get the point – heart valve disease impacts all kinds of people.

In fact, reports suggest that over 250,000 heart valve surgeries are conducted annually. If you are a patient or caregiver, I share this with you to emphasize the point that you are not alone.

If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know. And, if by chance, you know of any celebrities with endocarditis, please leave a reply below.

Keep on tickin!

    I really really appreciate how you encourage patients of heart valve surgery.
    I am 24 years old and did my mitral valve replacement surgery in 2009. I always very tensed about my condition. I am fit physically but I becme very sad when i saw myself among other friends. recently i did engagement and very upset about my fiance that what would she think about me. I often think that may be she think that she is unlucky to have such a defective husband. i have broken down by these type of thought what should i do.? i am sick of my life
    and another question is what is the life expectancy after mitral valve surgery?
