My surgery had mitral valve replacement leaflets where non existent,surgery went very well my scar is very fine and fading....I was in hospital ICU for 7 days as I had congestive heart failure after surgery then 3 more days to be observed.. I'm doing great now and am learning about the valve walking more each day.
Now the doctors are working on the veins in my legs as my valves are closed....hoping this helps with my neuropathy in both feet. Very happy January 14th is around the corner and I can start cleaning my house. I have been told no pushing or pulling or lifting more than 5 lb. until the 14th. Keeping my sternum safe and strong. xoxo to those in upcoming surgeries or more problems.
