Hello Trent! I'm happy for you that your mitral valve surgery was successful and it sounds as though you're starting a speedy recovery. Keep us posted about your journey. I had my mitral valve repair 10 years ago--hard to believe now! Keep feeling better!
I'm so happy to hear that your surgery went well. Isn't God good? Continue to improve and before you know it you will be back to where you should be. I also had a repair eleven(11) years ago and I'm doing well at 69 years of age.
I'm so thankful to hear you are out of surgery and tube free! It sounds like everything went very well. Please know I have been praying for peace, comfort and healing for you, as well as strength and comfort for your family. Each surgery amazes me and gives me more confidence for what I will later endure.
Keep us posted on your recovery and if we can do anything (even through this forum) let us know.
My boy Trent!! I sincerely thank the man above providing all the strength and comfort for you, your family and the medical team reaching success today. I wish you a smooth & stress free recovery and will be here if there is anything I can help with! RJones
Sounds as if they were able to repair rather than replace? If so great news. Also very happy to hear the tube is out. I bet you can't wait for him to come to.
Please keep us posted and let him know I am thinking of him. I did my 3 wk post op today for mitral repair and will now start cardiac rehab Weds. I am young, 45, but prior to surgery had both pneumonia and congestive heart failure so need a kick start, doc says in another 4 wks I should be back to good. Karen Campo
Hi Amanda - so happy to hear all is going well so far with Trent's surgery - I just had my MV repaired on May 29th - will be 3 weeks tomorrow and my recovery is going well.
