Almost 6 moths ago I received a OnX Mechanical valve at Mayo in Rochester, MN. I’m delighted to report I’m feeling great! Warfarin is required but not a big deal, just received my in home INR unit so testing moving forward should be much simpler and quicker. Been riding bicycle again, pushing my heart to 160 bpm without a single issue other than sore legs, I’ll take it!! Overall very pleased with the results of this surgery, post recovery, and having my life back again is wonderful. The team at Mayo was outstanding! Fear Not!
How many out there sport an OnX mechanic valve? I was set on tissue but don’t want to repeat this event in 5-10 years. I’m told the INR management is not that difficult with in home equipment, once stable.
