8 weeks ago I was worried about coming out of surgery. I spent a week on this site and I felt better entering surgery, MVR and CBP ( 1 ). 7 weeks post-op today and I can't believe how good I feel, which I didn't expect. I logged 4 miles, walking, on Wednesday. Started rehab this week which I'm so excited about. My goal is to end up in better shape than I was before all of this. Good luck and thanks to my heart warrior brothers and sisters. Keep Moving!
4 weeks ago I had my mitral valve repair and single bypass. I was so scared. I am so grateful for Adam and the rest of my heart warriors. This site made me feel so much better entering surgery. My healing has been remarkable, other than arm pit soreness. I'm breathing better than I have in years. I'm walking about 2 miles a day. I received so much support here and would recommend that anyone having a heart procedure, join the community. I hope everyone is doing well who's in recovery. Those with a scheduled procedure I want to say lean on us for support. You'll do great
Today was my 3 week follow up. Muscle and collarbone pain is about all I have left. Dr. said I was doing fantastic. Going to start cardiac rehab in a couple more weeks. Have to get ready for the golf course. Thanks to Dr Pahwa and his amazing University of Louisville staff. Haven't breathed this well in years.
