OHS scar from 2015 + pacemaker bulge on my left and new chemo port bulge on my right.
Here's my chest xray from 6 years ago - 2015.
It was taken a few months after OHS during which the aortic and mitral valves were replaced with mechanical valves and the tricuspid was repaired.
Breakfast in the cardiology ward at Pompidou hospital in Paris. On special days (like New Year's) they give you a croissant as well as a bread roll.
Since my scar photos all look the same now, here's me instead in my favorite café with a $1 flea market find.
Mitral v replaced with - Sorin Bicarbon Fitline,
