To post operative mitral valve repair patients......I am about 9 weeks out from robotic mitral valve repair. I still have episodes of severe chest pain that my docs say is inflammation from the procedure. It will mostly go away for a week or so then return. Anyone else experiencing this? How long does this go on?
I am nearly 3 weeks post op for robotic mitral valve repair. Curious about these symptoms I never had before surgery...... Light headed ness - like I have taken sinus meds, dizziness, migraine like auras but no severe head ache. Anyone else experience this?
I am one week out of robotic surgery for mitral valve prolapse repair. I truly believe my surgeon to be among the finest. However, getting advice from his office post operatively has been difficult.
Therefore I am seeking info in regard to some of the recovery symptoms I'm experiencing. Has anyone had severe bruising from the IV' s etc. on their arms? My bruises cover the majority of my inner arms (12 inches) and my arms ache especially when I am lying down. Has anyone experienced this? Also, how long until it's easier to find a comfortable position to sleep in?
My surgeons office just says, "everybody's different". Very frustrating. Any feedback is appreciated!
