Hi, I just joined this group. To respond to your question, I had a TAVR Aortic valve replaced in 2017. The whole process
took only 2 hours and they kept me overnight in the hospital for observation and sent me home the next day. It was a walk on the beach. No pain or complications. The groin (femur arteries) area where they went in was bruised black which is normal for about 4-5 days. The valve is working fine and may last another 10 years. Good Luck. You will be fine and home after just 1 night in the hospital just for observation.

Thanks Barb for the encouragement! The only symptom I have is more naps in the afternoon and evening. I am see my cardiologist next Friday and then in a few weeks schedule the TAVR.
