Thinking about getting a pillow wedge to help me sleep in my bed. Did anyone find them helpful? If so, how big a wedge was comfortable? Also, any other ideas to make recovery easier? It is fast approaching! Yikes!!
What tests are done for pre-op? The only thing I have been told is angiogram the day before surgery and another echo. What else is usually done? I am having an aortic valve replacement. Would appreciate any insight.
Yikes! I scheduled my surgery yesterday! It will be on February 6th with Dr Kevin Accola. My angiogram is February 5th at 8:30 am and then I will be admitted into the hospital. I think I am more apprehensive about the angiogram than the surgery! Crazy, I know! Do I need to take a heart pillow to the hospital or will they provide one?
