Good evening. I am currently starting week 4 after MV repair surgery by Dr Gerald Lawrie at Methodist in Houston. I noticed the difference as soon as I returned to my private room after being in ICU for 24 hours. All symptoms have gradually disapated including rapid heart beat, strong heart beat, palpitations. dizziness, muscle cramps at night, shortness of breath and migraine headaches. I had no idea that feeling normal again was possible. Thank God for Dr. Lawrie and thank God for all the surgeons and Dr's that have helped cardio medicine and surgeons to get to this point.
