Judith. Welcome to the community.
I see Ernie answered your question and I would like to add that should you wish to post your story, journal entries it may be a sense of comfort and information to you as you begin getting ready for your surgery as many of us are doing as well. My name is Terrie and I also am getting ready for surgery for Aortic Stenosis.
There are no wrong questions to ask of any of us here and no stupid answers either. It is a place for support and understanding and I hope you find it as healthy a place to go for yourself as I do. Best wishes-

Nope. Public journal for ALL to see. Good for other patients to read journals to know what to expect and what might or might not happen. Good for keeping family and friends appraised of what's going on. Also good for venting and asking questions of other patients.
