Six days post surgery and feeling really well! No pain, just uncomfortable due to chest bruising. I can handle that!
My surgery (Monday, June 12th) went smoothly and was uneventful - Dr. Geoffrey Answini (Christ Hospital in Cincinnati) and staff were amazing! I could not have had a better team!!!
My hospital stay was just the right amount of time. I was released Friday, June 16th and was ready to go home. I missed my bed and all the comforts of home!
I will post updates as I heal up but right now all is good - glad to be on the "recovering side". 😉
Thanks to each of you for your positive vibes and prayers - I wouldn't have been as fearless without you! Blessings ~ Debby
I am a 59 year old that found out I had a bicuspid valve four years ago. The Doctor that was doing my colonoscopy at that time heard a heart murmur and sent me to a cardiologist.
It is now time for surgery to replace my valve and I'm scared. I had my heart catheter and my groin hurt for a week after just having that! I have no blockages and I have to have this done at Christ Hospital in Cincinnati on June 12th, 2017.
I've been reading everyone's posts and it has been very interesting how some people do so well and others have complications. Any reassurances are appreciated. Thank you!
