Well, my aortic valve replacement surgery scheduled for We'd. Oct. 26th had to be postponed until November 9th ! Found out at my dental checkup that I had a bad tooth that could cause infection & needed extraction ! So that's done and now a bit longer wait to get this over with !
HI, I'm 73, almost 74 and have know for about 8 months that I have aortic stenosis. My echocardiogram Kept saying moderate but during a cardiac catherization a few weeks ago, the pressures were bad. I had an appointment with a Cardiothoracic specialist on October 4 th and it's now severe so I am scheduled for aortic valve replacement on October 26th. Luckily, no bypasses are needed but I'm still nervous about I,media tell afterwards and the recovery period.
