Cancelled surgery, second thoughts, need your opinions
Journal posted on February 21, 2020
Guess who got the Flu? Yup, unfortunately for me, I’ve had to postpone my surgery. Having more time to really think things over. I really am thinking and overthinking things. I really don’t have much of a choice as to the surgery, but, I do have tons more questions as to valve replacement (I.e. tissue vs. mechanical). More time to think . Being on blood thinners for the rest of my life and having blood test every few weeks to a month, worrying about the clicking of the valve and hearing it all the time, ( I’m not sure if I can do this), I’m accident prone too, worry about bleeding issues. On other hand, tissue valve needs replacing after 12-15 years? I’m going to be 53 this year. If everyone could chime in with their opinions or experience, please lay it on me!
