Has Anyone Had Aorta Or Mitral Valve Repair And/or Replacement?

Has Anyone Had Aorta Or Mitral Valve Repair And/or Replacement?

I had an echo and was told I have two leaky valves. I would like to hear your stories if you went through repair or replacement.

Yes I had a mitral valve surgery and was on blood thinner for ever. Talk about a headache. being on Coumedan, I hate that drug. Its whack. I felt worse after that surgery my heart was crashing. I had no energy pushing myself being dizzy all the time, it was so hard. God bless you so much I hope you praying lady. ❤️

I had an aortic valve replacement 11 weeks ago. the surgeon said he was going to do a mini invasive procedure but did a full open heart. I still have less energy now than before the operation.

I had my aorta heartvalve replacement 3years ago. I was told its leaking. And I can feel my energy levels is so down and struggle to breath even if just walk a short distance. Sometimes I hate myself for going through this as it was my decision to do the op. Some people have so much success with this op. But I guess I was not one of those lucky people. But this group helps me alot. Sometimes I feel fantastic. All the best.
