Posted on July 22nd, 2008 under Patient Stories & Updates, Ross Procedure.
There is nothing better than hearing from one of my readers after their open-heart surgery recovery is complete.
Recently, I received a very nice note from Melissa Causey. As you might remember, Melissa had a Ross operation in 2006 by Dr. William Ryan in Texas. She attached a recent picture that I have posted below.
FYI, here is a picture of Melissa just three days after her Ross Procedure in the hospital.
Melissa writes to me, “Dear Adam – I’m now 11 months post-op from my Ross Procedure and feeling great! My Uncle Ted gave me your heart valve surgery book a month before my surgery, and it is one of the best gifts I could have ever received. Your book really helped to prepare me as well as my family for my surgery and recovery. After reading your book, I was also able to communicate more effectively with my surgeon and cardiologist.”
Thanks so much for sharing Melissa! I really appreciate it!
Keep on tickin!
