I’m 7.5 weeks post mitral valve repair. I also had a bypass. I have a lot of pain in the leg that had the vein stripped. It is sore and stings around my ankle. It’s so painful I can’t sleep. Tylenol does not help. I’d appreciate any help.
Tomorrow is my heart catheterization. Last step to make sure all is well for my mitral valve procedure. My experience with the Clinic has been positive so far. The catheterization will be done through my left arm. Definitely a plus because I had back surgery 2 years ago. Laying flat for any length of time will result in too much pressure on my spine.
Hello everyone. On 2/21 I met with the Valve Clinic at Aurora St. Likes in Milwaukee. I was informed that I need to have mitral valve repair surgery. They will do this through my ribs on my left side. I still need to have a heart cath. I’m in good health and had no symptoms. I was wondering if anyone has had this same procedure. Are there some other resources for me to red?
