Welcome Charles. It sounds like you are doing great. Did you do rehab right after the surgery and just continue it? I stopped after 24 sessions and the insurance stopped paying.

Congratulations on the good report. It is sort of like a birthday. Valve patients celebrate each year with the same appreciation as your regular birthday. I am still pre-op and waiting so can't claim the valve birthday yet, but will soon enough. Keep up the good work.

"just right" is a great thing to hear during your first annual checkup! Welcome to the site. You will find kindred spirits here-we are all valve folks on one side or the other of surgery. All the best to you as you enter your 2nd year, Charles.
