Would be very interested to hear from anyone who had raised (High - ranging from 160-170- over 90-100 ) blood pressure about 3 and a half months after Aortic Valve replacement. ( Bicuspid Valve )
All seemed to be going well, back at work ( slowly ) walking & running intermitttnly - 3 miles and very light weights.
I am on 5 mg of Amlodipine and just 2 days ago started 2.5 mg of Ramipril - Doctor took me of Bisoprolol (2.5 mg ) about 3 weeks now.
My Heart rate is sitting excellent between 50 and 56 in morning and pretty steady all the time.
So bit of a what the hell is happening now !!!
Is this normal for Aortic Valve replacement.
Any body that has had a similar experience and how they managed through the experience would be gratefully appreciated. Pat
2 brothers my mother Margaret at 78 & bernie sean's wife all very supportive at week 9 after surgery

Hi, Name is pat from North Ireland - 8 weeks out of surgery yesterday and going well, still a little nervous that something could go wrong, but hanging in there, and keeping positive, getting in the walks, eating well, and doing some cooking, and driving - probably too much.
Looking forward to being a part of the community, and looking out for assurances probably that all is going as expected. Its a big deal .
