I am impressed, how do you manage to walk three and a half miles two weeks after your op? I wasn't going anywhere after two weeks . Great to see it is possible

Congratulations on your speedy recovery! The Cleveland Clinic is a wonderful place. I went there (from Colorado) in 2010 to have a AVR. Had surgery Friday afternoon and got out of the clinic on Monday and flew home on Tuesday. Completely uneventful recovery. Most painful part was when I change the bandage using that innocuous looking tape they sent you home with. I applied too much and when it came time to remove it, I thought I would die! Dumb me...
Anyway, have a great recovery and a bright life ahead!

Sending best wishes for your surgery, and a successful outcome. My mitral valve repair went well and hoping your repair means you continue your remarkable career/lifestyle. Keep us advised post surgery, Roger

Dearest Eric, Thoughts and prayers to you and your family. So glad to hear how strong and young you are. It's been a year for me since my tissue AV replacement, minimally invasive. I wish for you the same new health and outlook I now have. It seems each week brings new advancements to this surgery to make it easier. You are going to be a mentor for those coming behind you. Be patient with yourself and know you have many hearts thinking of you tomorrow and forward.
Just to note to wish you well for the surgery on July 3rd. You have a leg up because you are young and active. I bet you will have a very smooth recovery! Hoping you get that repair you want - that would be fantastic! Best wishes to you.

Just read your story. So sorry you have to go through this at such a young age. I am 63 yo and 12 weeks past AVR and ascending aneurysm repair (another bonus from my BAV) . Best of luck with your consult at CC , and I hope they can repair your valve. It is a big surgery, but you are in great shape and will do well. You will find lots of helpful information on this site.
