I have been home from the hospital for about a week now. I feel better than the first day after surgery and hoping to continue with this growth. There were several things I experienced after surgery and after arriving home.
1. The pain from removing the drain tubes
2. Having a hard time getting in and out of bed
3. Soreness all over
4. Can't find a comfortable place to sleep but my recliner
5. Numbness in my right boob
6. Rattling and mild chest pains
I'm hoping that this will pass soon though I am extremely happy to have had a successful surgery and on the road to recovery.
Tomorrow morning I will be having my angiogram.
Does anyone know how soon they have the results of the angiogram? Also, my last meal was at 6pm tonight and I just had some water. Was that ok?😳 any advice or heads up on anything???
My sidekick, soldier, right hand man, and best friend. Love this guy to the moon and back.

I live in Los Angeles, CA and my surgery will take place at Kaiser on Sunset. I haven't received my date yet but I think it will be scheduled the end of May. I will keep you all posted! Now I'm trying to get my mind right and mentally prepare for this. My fiancé has been great. Our wedding was originally scheduled for September 2nd. Not really sure if we can still pull it off I'm just thankful that everyone involved is on standby and willing to extend their hand.
Found out recently that I need my AVR. Is there a particular diet/lifestyle change I should be on? I just want to make sure I'm completely healthy. I was thinking plant based.... Any suggestions or tips?
On April 4, 2017 I was informed by the second opinion cardiologist that I would need my valve replaced. My fiancé and I got engaged on October 7, 2016. We started planning our wedding and preparing ourselves to have a baby soon after the wedding. Before we could proceed with all of our planning we were hit with this. We so desperately want to have children and we are currently trying to decide on what we want to do. Please offer any advice or help
