Today is the 1 year anniversary of my aortic valve replacement and my aortic aneurysm repair. I feel great and the only remaining side effect from it is the scar. While I would be in no hurry to go through the surgery or the first few weeks following again, it was not as bad as I had feared and just something you get through. For those of you still facing surgery, know that the results are worth it!
I am feeling better today but am still having issues with a-fib. I have been put on both metoprolol and amiodarone. How long post surgery did any of you still have problems with a-fib and did you need to stay on arrhythmia drugs permanently?
