Mom is still in the ICU due to her blood pressure being too low. Ironically, she has dealt with high blood pressure most of her adult life. I was wondering if anyone else had issues with very low BP after surgery.
Mom is doing great! She has been up and walking around the ICU and has been able to tolerate the pain very well. It took a little longer to get off the vent than expected but she is now back on track. They expect to move her out of ICU tomorrow.
My 64 year old mom has been diagnosed with aortic valve stenosis and will go through valve replacement in the coming weeks. Now she has the difficult decision of what valve to choose. It is so overwhelming!
Mom anxious to have it done so that she can feel better. She is so good at hiding how she feels I didn't realize how sick she is until the meeting with the surgeon.
