Best of luck with your procedures, and if possible, please keep us posted from the hospital or have a relative do so.
Note for future surgery: You'll be feeling better quickly, but don't go home too soon after surgery if your insurance allows an extra day's stay.
Hi Anton Welcome to HVJ a wealth of support and info. I am a NC resident and at one time I had a mitral valve repair @ U of M with Dr Steve Bolling, and my son had a heart defect (atrial septal defect) @ U of M Dr Bove and Dr McDonald Dick. My last surgery this past Aug was @ Carolinas Medical Center, as I made a decision to stay close to home as we moved here 11 yrs ago. Who will be doing your surgery? We lived in Traverse City when we were pts @ U of M.
