Had a great start today! Went on my usual walk at our community plaza completed my 7 rounds. When I went home I looked at my phone's clock and saw I completed the rounds early so I decided to do more cardio turned on Shout for Joy and Today is the day music and danced (limited mg movements though). I kept moving for 17 mins. More. I ate my oatmeal and sing along with Bless the Lord, Oh my soul and the praise and worship version of Ed Sheerans Perfect and I almost didnt feel like grasping for my breath while singing. Thank You Lord! All the encouraging words from all of you here helped a lot! May everyone have a beautiful and blessed week ahead!
It has been 7 weeks since my OHS. I have been battling with anxiety again lately. I have been worrying about why almost everyone says they are feeling better each new day while i am feeling this heaviness and sometimes I needed to do deep breathing because I dont think i breath well naturally. Plus I have been into stressful situations with people around me for several times this week. Though Shoulder pain isn't that bad anymore and I can lift my left arm above my head though not that straightened like the right one, still pain radiates to the head. I tried to get up from sleeping position by rolling by my side 1st before getting up and I guess its ok to do it now. Also upon walking up by BP is quite high at 125-130/80 or 70 but gets 110-120/70-80 after sometime.
It has been 6 days and my left shoulder is still painful after getting out of bed. It even radiates up to the upper portion of my head at the back of my ears. I am optimistic this will go away soon since finally I will be on 8th week post op on Aug. 2. Restricting pains in mg shoulders and back still come sometimes esp. After being not straightly seated for quite sometime. I thank God for everyday's mercies.

4 weeks post op and experiencing a feeling of heaviness during mid morning up to evening in the shoulders and back and a little bit in the chet especially after bending down a little.
Called my surgeon and he calls this a restrictinh feeling and says it is normal.
I am 29 years old and was advised to undergo Aortic and Mitral valve replacement. I am currently experiencing fatigue and irregular hearbeat. I am trying o live healthy as of the moment and fervently praying that God will help me out of this trial. I am afraid to undergo surgery.
