Definitely a good feeling to be at this stage. Much to be thankful for of course. Two issues remain;
(1) Premature Atrial Contractions. I'm told from the cardiologist they are benign. I can certainly feel them when they occur but its a lot less disruptive than full-on AFIB. Knock on wood, glad those days are behind me.
(2) Having trouble getting my INR dialed in. Its up one week and down the next. Last two weeks, I've been below my target range of 2.0 to 3.0. Nothing on the diet side has changed so its a head scratcher. Anyone else had trouble getting the INR dialed in initially?
Aortic root aneurysm measuring 5.1cm. It exanded to 5.5cm which was tipping point for me to get it repaired on 11/15/18

I’m a few days shy of 3 weeks out of surgery. Generally all going pretty well. I am struggling with AFIB. Since the 12 days that I’ve been home, 6 days in AFIB and 6 days in sinus. AFIB is a real downer and impacts so much. Anyone else experience these bouts with post surgical AFIB?
