Ablation was for Afib and things didn’t quite seem right afterwards. CHF was diagnosed at the end of July and have had constant chest pressure since being put on all kinds of meds.

As far as being aware of a pacemaker, I feel nothing. Maybe that is a good thing. Maybe I feel so well, maybe I don’t feel anything.

Has anyone had a redo sternotomy to replace a calcified mitral valve?
This is because they can't replace a mitral valve through a TAVR procedure in the USA yet. There are clinical trials ongoing, but they are very selective on picking the right candidates. Asking as Iam facing this situation (open heart again) and am told that it is high risk, ie. 80 % sucess rate average. Your comments please. Thank you.
