Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all. if anyone else has noticed GI improvements post AVR. I am now 15 months post-op and have noted that what I thought were food allergy or IBS signs have resolved to a great degree. Interesting to me as I dealt with these for years. Anyone else experience this?
I year out and enjoying life! Hiked 4 miles uphill to see this waterfall in the Smoky Mts. Then 4 miles downhill! 7 hour day of beautiful sights and a workout! Life is good. So thankful!

I just completed my latest followup echocardiogram and saw my cardiologist. Everything looks great and I feel better/have more stamina than before surgery. My doc tells me I don’t need another echo for (drumroll please) TWO YEARS!! I feel like I’ve been given my freedom. What a great feeling!
