Glad you are able to get on here and make some comments. Relax, but don't lay about doing nothing. You need to get your strength back, so make sure you are walking a little each day. No, I am not a doctor, but I watch a lot of medical programs on TV. LOL As you know, I manage a dental office. You will need to take antibiotics prior to any dental appointments from now on, because of your new heart valve. I am not sure if your doctor will remind you of this or not. We have a lot of patients come in and we have to reschedule their appointments because their doctor didn't tell them about taking the antibiotic. Keep a smile on your face, a twinkle in your eyes, laugh as often as possible, and accept any and all help that is offered to you. Love you bunches.
dear bill....thank goodness surgery went well....so sorry the recovery started off on a rocky road....so delighted you are in the comfort of your own home once again....please remember you are in my thoughts and prayers...jane
Cheri has been keeping me posted on your heart valve journey. I haven't checked my email in ages, and I just found this today. I am glad things are going so well for you. You are a trooper, and your faith in God will bring you through this. I always laugh when people tell me that God never gives us more than we can handle. My response is He must think I am stronger than I do. The truth is, He knows us a lot better than we know ourselves. So, don't give up and feel like you can't handle the pain and limitations. It will get better and you will be stronger. I am home most evenings after 6 so call me if you want to talk. cell # is 863-860-6841. I am not going to call you because I don't want to call when you are resting or talking to the doctor, etc. I have been praying for you since I heard about your surgery. Get well soon so you can get home to see your babies. Love you, dear friend.
Bill, you are in my good thoughts and prayers. Remember you are loved, more than you even realize sometimes. Gotta get those valves fixed, I don't want to leak out of your heart! Take good care of yourself, and let the medical people take good care of you, too. Don't try to do too much too soon (yeah, right, I know who I'm talking to, ha ha ha). Big hugs, much love, Marji
Welcome to Heart Valve Journal. I and many like us have benefited a lot from this site. I had Aortic Stenosis too and had my valve replaced almost four months ago. I didn't have the other procedures though. So I wish you louck and feel free to ask questions anytime.
You can check out my journal too for a blow by blow of my experience. And you can email me with specific quesitons or if you want to talk before hand.
