Hello to all my fellow zipper club members. I had my surgery over 2 years ago for aortic root replacement and my aortic valve repair. I have been with minor pain ( more discomfort from time to time) but increased lately. My cardiologist telling me that all my tests results are OK and only possibility are the wires in my ribs cage which my heart surgeon wants to remove it as he thinks that might cause the pain. The pain is more on the left side and closer to my chest area. Is anyone experienced similar problems after surgery?
