Hi Monique, 8 - nearly 9 years and counting up to my 10th aniversary... but for me its even more important as i had a massive Aortic Dissection and had all of my ascending aorta replaced with a dacron implant as well as the aortic valve so it's about a 2% survival rate - so im a very happy camper!

 

cheers
