Well, here I am one year later. Bovine valve ticking along. I'm happy to answer any questions for those of you with surgery in the future.
I'm 45 and had AVR surgery 6 months ago at Florida Hospital by the fabulous Dr. Kevin Accola. This morning I ran a 5k on the runway at Tampa International Airport. Me and my cow ️valve did great!
Heart sisters meet❤️ Me and Tammy Pilcher. We had the same surgery by the same surgeon just 10 days apart on 10/21/14 and 10/31/14. Thank you Adam for bringing us together!
Hello my heart friends! Me and my cow valve just went for a long walk. I'm 6 weeks and 2 days post op today. You can see here, I'm wearing a big heart shirt. I found this while out Christmas shopping so I bought myself a present😍
Today is one month with my new valve❤️. This morning I went to my son's school for his Thanksgiving celebration. Boy, do I have a lot to be thankful for!!
Oh, what a sweet day! It has been 3 weeks and 1 day since I got my bovine valve. I went for the most awesome walk along the bay here in Tampa.
My 15-day post op selfie. Each day is a little bit better.
After hearing from some of you wanting to see how my incision looks, here it is. This is 12 days post op. I think it's healing nicely😊
