Well hello all my heart friends. I have not been on for awhile, was feeling rough the first 5-6 weeks post op, but all of the sudden the energy came back, arrhythmias gone! I feel great like I never had surgery! I wish all of you going into surgery the best of luck! It will all work out!!!
Well 2 weeks where does the time go...i feel so grateful everything went well. I just thought I would feel little better then I do...trying to walk a lot, light house work and cooking, but I seem to get sob on exertion...maybe I am expecting to much. still need Tylenol and Advil not so much for pain, but general aches and feeling chilly...I don't know if anyone else experienced this...I felt so down last night all I could do is cry!
Hi to all my heart brothers and sisters...I am six days post op AVR. I try and walk but very very slow and sometimes experience feelings of heavy breathing heart pounding or pulpitations. I am walking a little more each day and will visit surgeon before leaving the Bay Area Saturday! Looking for all you feedback! Thank you!
11/27 Two days post op! Feeling ok, but had ups and downs

Good morning all my heart friends, I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I want to reach out to Kimberly, Jacqueline, Shelley, Billy and Kelly on their surgeries this week...I wish you all a very smooth surgery and pain free recovery, you are all in my prayers! I am having a my catheterization done this week to determine if anything else has to be repaired or fixed other then my AVR...I am very nervous about everything, I am trying be positive and pray...I live on the east coast and was looking at the Cleveland Clinic Dr Roselli and Dr. Luis Castro...I emailed Dr. Castro last week and he set up a time to call me, needless to say he spoke to me on the phone for a hour and seemed so genuine. His reviews are excellent. Could anyone else share information on Dr. Castro and Sequoia Hospital. Thank you all!
Hi everyone, I need to have my Aortic Valve replaced soon, still doing a lot of reseach. I live on the east coast and have been looking at two surgeons so far...Dr Eric Roselli from the Cleveland Clinic and Dr. Luis Castro from Sequoia Hospital in Redwood City, Ca. does anyone have their own insight or personal experiences with these two doctors. Or are their other outstanding surgeons on the east coast I could reseach.
Thanks in advance.
