I had OHS for mitral valve repair, MAZE procedure PFO closure and left atrial appendectomy on May 3 rd. Had atrial fib pulmonary edema and pleural effusion after. Had thoracentesis May 9th. Been slowly getting stronger. Walking 2 miles a day. Sleeping good. No breathing problems finally. I had heart failure and fib for 8 months pre surgery so am so happy this is going away. I was discharged with anemia but that is better too. I still need lots of naps. My chest is sore but Tylenol works fine with my heart pillow. I hope it sounds like I am recovering ok.
