Had my 1 year ct scan/check today ! Met with surgeon to go over results ! good news ! I was nervous going in, since I didn’t have any symptoms when this whole thing started!, but thanks to my great surgeon my New valve is working as it should and the aortic root replacement is too! The blood is flowing and heart is ticking away to its new beat! I feel relieved! I feel blessed and so thankful ❤️
I did get a few reminders: No extreme lifting,
pre-med before any dental or other procedures, take care of you body and make sure you are in range with warfarin! I will be going yearly for scans for 5 years then possibly to every other year! Cardiologist is every year.
Take care of your ❤️❤️❤️ And it will take care of you !
I am grateful, thankful, and blessed! One year ago today my family sat in a waiting room for 8 hours while I had aortic valve replacement and an aneurysm repair... they laughed, cried, took selfies and prayed! They took such great care of me ! Here I am a year later stronger than ever! Thankful for my great family, excellent doctors and God! I’m still in disbelief, but my scar reminds me everyday that I am a warrior! ❤️
