POD #6. I am still here in the Cleveland Clinic. Had two brief bouts of A fib. Currently back to preop sinus rhythm. Also had a ??? left atrial appendage thrombus; subsequently ruled out with a follow up trans thoracic echo. Hoping to get home tomorrow. Was able to get a bovine, Ca-resistant valve with a 2.8 cm aortic graft. Still uncomfortable but looking forward to home bed and cooking.
Hello to all! I am preparing for an AVR on Oct 7 with Dr. Vargo at the Cleveland Clinic. I have really enjoyed reading the many posts from everyone. It certainly is nice to hear real and recent experiences. I look forward to upcoming conversations and wish everyone all the best!
