Going to my Cardiologist on monday. Hoping that he has some good news for me. I was told that i might not be a candidte for heart transplant. And the other route is a kono procedure which is a long surgery and dificult. I dont know what to do! This will be my 3rd surgery.
Hi im lorraine, i love the site!! I need to know im not the only one that had surgery. I had a mitral vavle replacement that almost took my life! My lungs were compromised therefore i was put on a ventilator for 1 month to be exact.
After recovery i felt at my best. Wow!! I can breath! I can walk up hills and swim a little, isnt that great?
My quality of life has improve until 8 months later i caught pneumonia in addition to that, the flu.
I realized after recovering from that i was never the same. I started going down hill again. "What a bummer"😔 at this moment im in the hospital and was told that i have a aortic membrane that laying underneath my aortic vavle and the vavle is leaky therefore i need another open heart. Im scared and confused right now so im thinking of holding off right now. Please someone give me some advice.😢
