Support Group for Mechanical & Artificial Heart Valve Surgery & Using Warfarin
How time zooms along! - Almost 2 months in since my replacement valve. All going well, tired in the afternoons and early evening, and a very load thumping (no clicking) of the heart at times.
I am managing 45 minutes of walking (being pulled along by my 55 kg Beauceron) in the mornings, followed up by about half an hour's cycling in the afternoon ( no Beauceron at this stage).
My cardiolog is happy with the outcome of operation and my recovery. I am having trouble getting my INR level to the required level of between 2.8 and 3.5 - not much margin for error. Back to the doctors tomorrow to see how much longer I need to recover. To those of you waiting for the op, I must say, without exaggeration, that it was less bother than I had expected, almost a walk in the park.
Thanks to all of you for your postings and to those of you who have sent kind wishes by mail.
