Greetings all. Today is 9 mos. since MV Repair w/ Dr. Girardi @ NY Presbyterian/Weill Cornell.
Dr. G and team did a great job, my 6 mo. echo shows no leakage. Feel great, back to full exercise routine for 62 yr old male. Only hiccup is non-symptomatic atrial flutter (not AFIB) which my cardiologist and I are monitoring w/ medication. May consider right atrium ablation @ some point. Has anyone else dealt w/ this post surgery?
Pre-surgery my cardiologist & I decided on OHS and I then interviewed 3 of the best who performed hundreds of valve repair/replacement each year. Grateful to find Dr. Girardi.
Kind regards to all my fellow patients, thanks, John D.
