Have a large Aortic Aneurysm, Ascending. The valve has small leak, but they feel it my be fixed when they replace the part of the artery that is affected. so were going in thinking the valve is fine but need a plan B if its not. so i need to decide which type of valve i want in case we need to go to plan B. Any one have this procedure with no valve replacement? The date is quickly approaching so my nerves are really starting to kick in. The unknown after i wake up is causing a lot of stress. Just like you all went through. how do i calm my self down as the day approaches?
