Greetings all, update: had appointment with cardiologist and need aortic valve replacement. In early stages of process. I have Lupus and ITP (low blood platelets). Does anyone having their aortic valve replacement also have low blood platelets? If so, what was your options regarding type of valve? I'm also assuming you can't be on blood thinners which limits your options.
Just received ECHO results I have Severe Aortic Stenosis. See cardiologist on Monday 12-6-21. Been researching a bit, lots I've learned and yet to learn. One quick question, with this condition did others have chronic cough and mucus production? I've always thought this was from allergies, sinuses, etc. Also have asthma. Thanks in advance for any feedback.
