Last Friday I had my aortic valve replaced through OHS and was home Tuesday afternoon/evening...I cannot believe how Great I feel (and have felt for the past couple days) just relaxing at home. I take a pain pill on occasion but could probably even do without that. Less than a week from a major surgery and I feel fine!
For all of you on-deck: I wish you well...the anxiety you get before the operation (at least I had some) is hardly worth a thought. I'm quite surprised how simple it ended up being (not trying to play it down, it's very, very serious but, these guys (the Dr.'s and Nurses) know what they are doing!
