I had the same operation, valve replacement and artery repair with a full sternotomy. I am only 7 1/2 weeks post op, just a puppy from where you at. So far I have not experienced any depression and feel better in myself than I did before. I know longer have a sick and deteriorating valve and artery in me that if left untreated, would have taken my life in about a year. Although I still cant do the physical things / lifting I used to, I plan on a total recovery🙏. I walked about 8 miles the other day and did not feel overly tired or worn out. I am very greatful to my surgeon and his team who did a remarkable job on my surgery and also to the cow🐂 who made and supplied a part of itself to make my life better 😀. Many people say the surgery has been life changing, I had never really thought about it that way before but it has certainly made me a lot more of a positive and greatful person.
Anyway, have to remember the BLESSINGS and deal w the other stuff...

I believe we expect to just go through the surgery, and return to "normal". The big surprise for many, including myself, is that the new "normal" is not the same as before.
