Off to hospital at noon tomorrow in Melbourne Australia. Much love and blessings to you all who are so positive and been so helpful to me. See you all on the other side of this and as Adam says Keep Ticking .......
Well I just had my angiogram bloods and got my surgery date June 9 2015. So close it is amazing that it is happening. Very sore groin from angiogram. Resting up but thinking of a million things to do. I will be having mitral valve and aortic valve replacements with mechanical valves and maybe tricuspid, terrified all I will be aware of is the clicking noises and so worried about coming round in ICU not wanting restless legs and hallucinations. Anyone out there done this op it will be open heart at Epworth Hospital in Melbourne Aust.
How long does surgery take for fixing maybe 2 or 3 valves???

Heading in for angiogram next week. Getting a bit anxious. Can anyone tell me how long it takes to have 2 or 3 mechanical valves replaced, this might be in June but no date yet. I am really scared of waking up in ICU, I will be having open heart for this. Just cannot imagine what the first few days will be like, some of you look so good and seem to be home so quickly, hey, amazing but I am still in the anxiety state of not really knowing what to expect. Advice please from you wonderous people.
Hi All, this is a pic of my with my first grandbaby.. So loving it all and it is distracting me from open heart surgery in June. Having an angiogram on the 27th May I look so well no one belives me when I say I am having open heart and 3 valves replaced. They just ask me why ? Hard to explain feel like a drama queen. Everyone on here seems very calm and coping. Wishing I was in USA not Australia
Well I am off for my angio gram on the 27th May and looks like my surgery will be in June, will let you know when I get a date.
I will be getting 2 or 3 mechanical valves anyone with this I would love to hear from hope I don't hear too much clicking
Seems like you all recover so quickly, are you all open heart surgery or minimally invasive. I have to have open heart and 2 valves fixed because of my cancer and heart issues will be in hospiital for 2 weeks?
Just seen my cardiologist for a review and he wants me to have surgery for 2 heart valves maybe 3 that are leaking, it will be in June , date yet to be set. I feel weepy, flat, angry and sort of blank, I also have neuro endocrine cancer and I live in Australia. Surgery will be in Melbourne
Hello all, Just got 4 appointments all made for different days and times, also got a cancellation from my oncologist for my review, getting a bit depressed that nothing seems to be falling into place, does anyone else have trouble with appointments like this
I am finding the not knowing and waiting really hard

Trying so hard not to get bogged down with Happy New Year when I am waiting to see if I have surgery or not. Any tips on waiting and not getting too anxious would be good. The cancer I have affects neuro endocrine hormones so I am a bit all over the place anyway. Some Doctors are telling me watchful waiting and others full on have surgery now. I am anxious and confused.
