Eric Davidson posted a note for Jean that says:
I'm meeting with Dr. Colla next week for my surgical consult to have my aortic valve replaced at Carle. I was wondering if you had any suggestions or recommendations that my wife and I should consider.
Welcome to HVJ and am glad to hear your surgery was successful. I had some minor trouble with my swallowing after the tube came out and it lasted for a while. It's possible the breathing tube disturbed something and all it will take is time to return to normal. Good luck on your recovery. Cheryl, Ontario
