Scheduled for Mitral Valve Repair on Nov.19, 2018.
Was diagnosed with mitral regurgitation in my 20's.
Now in my fifties and the regurg has reached the point where I am having bouts of shortness of breath, feeling lightheaded, heart thumping and palpitating more frequently, and surgery is needed to prevent further problems.
I am starting to get nervous and fearful of the whole procedure and the risks involved.
However, I know I need to have this done or my heart health will continue to decline and leave me with a poor quality of life.
Had my mitral valve repair surgery done on November 19, 2018. It was a successful surgery praise God and I am now in the very early stages of recovery. Have had some hiccups along the way but overall I'm coming along just fine.
Great to be alive with a newly repaired heart.
Thank you Jesus!
