Seen your blog thing and I'm also in the same boat a little older in my early 30s but I found out I needed surgery a month age and now my surgery is in 5 days the 28th of this month. I like you never ha any prob my entire life and even now I don't have any issues but the doc said I have bad ai and need to get this done. I work hard as a lineman and I play even harder I'm always non stop and on the go and I never get sick common cold once every five years or so. I feel your pain brother I'm like you and found all this to be a little over whelmed. I have five days and still don't know what valve I want it's like buying a car kinda get the sports car that will last 30 years but pay buy taking blood thinners or get a used car that will last 7-10 years and pay by needing sooner surgery to replace that one down the road. It sux and I'm lost. Any advice on what valve lol also once I go in and get done I will keep you posted on what it was like since we are both close in age

Diego: I also had several episodes of pretty intense chest pain that I "ignored" or just hoped would go away. Only now do I realize how much I was in denial. I live near the Cleveland Clinic in Weston, FL.

It's great that you found out. You are young and will get though this. Thank God for all the great surgeons. You will be in my thoughts and my prayers. I have a son who is the same age as you. You will be fine.
