    WOULD YOU ADDRESS OR CAN YOU DIRECT ME TO INFORMATION REGARDING REPLACEMENT OF AORTIC VALVE WITH POSSIBLE AORTIC STEM AND/OR MITRAL VALVE WORK IN A 60 YEAR OLD WHO HAS HAD A HEAD INJURY? AS A RESULT FALLING IS NORMAL, AND THERE IS CONCERN REGARDING ADDING COUMADIN/WARFARIN DUE TO THE INCREASED RISK OF BLEEDING WITH ALL OF THE BUMPS AND FALLS.

    MANY THANKS.

    Ginger: I had my arotic valve replacement surgery done at Northwestern Hospital in Chicago by Dr. McCarthy’s team on 1/19/12. The first two months were tough, but I followed thru with the rehab and also lost 75 pounds. We live in SW Florida and I swim every day for 45 minutes. I have energy to burn and feel like a new person. As far as the Warfarin blood thinner I find that a non issue. You can get an INR test Meter from Phillips 800-804-0002 and test your levels that the doctor has given. That saves you from trips to the doctor’s office. You have to monitor your level, but it is no big deal. Last week I took an hour flight in the World War II P-51 Mustang and that was a real hoot. Good luck and feel tree to email me if you have any questions. JOE
