Relaxing 4 days before valve replacement surgery. June 10th 2016
Journal posted on May 11, 2016
We have fine hospital systems here in Rockford Illinois where I live. I have decided however to travel 275 mile to Mayo clinic rank #2 in the nation to get my procedure done. Originally Mayo's had scheduled me to come June 13th for tests and consultation with surgeon and on June 14 operation. Well I wanted more time than just 24 hours to decide or feel better about valve choice. I was able to get June 3rd for the tested and consultation then June 14 for surgery. The nurse didn't think I would want to be driving back and forth, I said that's okay no problem!...lol
I have a question for people with both type of aortic valve replacements. I work for a large company that is the color "BROWN" and do a lot of heavy lifting. Has anyone else here been able to go back to a heavy manual labor job? Mechanical or Bio valve?
