Just found out having mitral valve repair or replacement in three weeks. Crazy. A lot to think about. Reading through feed here for tips and tricks. I've had several other surgeries non-heart related so hoping that will help me prepare and not be too freaked out. Any advice greatly appreciated.
Also, anyone have any info on hypoallergenic electrode pads used before and after surgery for heart monitoring. I get horrific welts/rashes when pads are left on during and after surgery. Almost like burns. Would love to know if anyone has had any solutions to this problem.
Thank you in advance.
