Hope you all doing well.. I'm exited to write this post after my surgery was on Sept 18th.
My surgery went went well rather better than expected!! Its proved again that "God is great!!"
I went to Cleveland on 12th Sept and started pre-op tests starting Sept 15th. The interesting fact came through tests is that i have severe aortic regurgitation rather aortic aneurysm..
The cardiologist started discussion on surgery and pointed out that the valve may get repaired 60-70%. With that hope I underwent angiogram to confirm i dont have artery diseases.
While talking to my surgeon Svennson, he also confirmed the same and chose to repair if possible OR replace with St.Jude mechanical valve.
On thursday, Sept18, i reached hospital at 5.15am and after surgery i only got up 10.30 pm.
So the verdict was the surgery went well and it was better than expected with repairing my BAV and replacing ascending aorta with graft.
My recovery is wonderful until now, and its going better than my expectation :)
May be the quality of surgery or my age supporting my recovery.
So I'm back here to respond any queries if you have and also wish to hear you back from you on your experience with the repaired BAV and recovery and life :)
Today i just had my pre-op tests for my surgery on Sept 18th at Cleveland clinic.
While talking to cardiologist, came to know that there is a chance of repair 60-70% of my aortic valve due to its regurgitation rather a stenosis.
So now, confused/wondering that if at all i get a chance to repair it, is it a reliable option? I expect the surgeons to make the right decision but just thinking to go for replacement or still go with repair?
Is there anyone who come across this situation or who really did repair and condition or the life of a repaired BAV?
