Dear Adam, After all my research, your book gave me a reality check as I enter my aortic heart valve replacement surgery on July 20th. Your book has been fantastic and you pushed me to start my journal last night. So of course all those well wishes I am getting already are giving me strength in addition to all you have said. I look forward to being 110% and playing singles tennis, skiing, working out, etc. at almost 59 when my recovery is complete. Your book was one of the best gifts I have bought myself since ‘Why French Women Don;t Get Fat”. Lots of love to you, Lynn

dear Adam,
Your book was a tremendous help to my family when my father was having mitral valve repair and bypass surgery. However seven months after surgery when he had an echocardiogram done it was found that there was an ‘insiignificant leak’. The left atrium is dilated and there was a little swelling. He was told that there was no swelling on hom so maybe the swelling was nothing to worry about. Are these things normal after heart valve surgery? L would really appreciate a response, since I live ib Trinidad and no one so far seems to have an answer.
Thanks
Sharon
