I hope you have had luck scheduling your surgery. It’s so scary to us, but those surgeons do a great job. Find one you trust and love. You will not regret it.

Hi Jackie, I was scheduled for Mitral valve and Aortic valve replacement in March. Then Covid came along. By the time I had my surgery on June 22nd, I was losing energy and my valves were causing me to not feel great. It has only been 5 weeks and I feel better already. I was very scared at first about the sternum cut and the long surgery ( 7 hours ). It sounds like you just need to do it. I had to convince myself that also. God bless and good luck.

Hi Jackie. It's normal to be scared but you have to do it! Our minds are our worst enemy. After it is over and you are on the road to recovery, you'll say that you wished you hadn't worried so much.
