Hi, Gloria. I had aortic valve replacement surgery in 2000. Like you, my most recent echo has indicated that my stenosis is severe. Therefore, I will be seeing a surgeon this week to determine how soon I will need surgery again. Good luck and God bless you.
Hi Gloria and welcome to the "club." I'm not too far from you - Brooklin, Maine. I'll be going to the Cleveland Clinic for my surgery on April 21st. It's a lot to adjust to when you have just learned your need for surgery, but in time you accept it. Best of luck to you.
