Leslie, maybe wait till you have more info. , it may be nothing the surgeon did or did not do. Further testing may show no problem? Had mitral valve repair 2/13/13, doing well now. Loyd Howle , Arizona
Re using the same surgeon a 2nd time...in a large sense, the advice of getting second opinions may well apply here. Personally, I was referred to allegedly the best or one of the best "in town". I got out of town 2nd opinion, in my case Cleveland Cinic, Columbia U, and U of Maryland and was glad I did. I had to travel far from Albuquerque for my OHS, and was glad I did. ...Barry on the mtn in NM
Here's hoping that the results of your next echo say you don't need a redo.Try to think positive and stay strong,as much as possible, Leslie. I'm sending lots of positive vibes and tons of prayers your way.Wishing you the very best....
