As a double heart valve surgery patient, I'd like to personally welcome you to our online community of heart valve surgery patients, their families and friends!
After I was diagnosed with severe heart valve disease, I experienced several uncomfortable feelings including fear and confusion. I also experienced an overwhelming emotion of loneliness. I didn't know anybody with heart valve disease. I didn't know what to expect before or after surgery.
