Great job and looks like you are well on your way !!! Thanks for the post :) I am 4 weeks post surgery (mitral valve repair) and thinking that I should be feeling better so it gives me great comfort to see you were in the same spot and in 8 weeks you are now working out so this gives me great hope that I will be at my pilates class before long !!!! If you don't mind me asking when did you start cardio rehab ????
You are a brave and strong woman, My heart goes out to you and I can tell you will get stronger each day. By the way do you know how to get a picture up, I am trying to put mine up but it never works and I do not see a websupport button on here. I am very new to this site..

I read your journal and see you had a mechanical value. I am trying to decide what type of valve for my surgery. One doctor says mechanical and one doctor sas tissue valve. Why did you choose mechanical? What kind of side affects are you having taking blood thinner?
Wendy, had aortic valve replaced last 10/28. You cannot tell now perfectly normal. No restrictions, every day after my first day after surgery I felt 3x better than the day before, that went on for a week!
Hi Wendy! I had my mitral and aortic valves replaced 5 weeks ago today. You can do it! I notice a lot of great things since I had surgery: more energy and no more horrific cough!!! I will keep you in my prayers tomorrow!
