Sorry not been on this site for a while. Just to keep you posted as its 5 months since my aortic valve replacement.
I saw my Cardiologist this week and i had a few questions answered. I was due to have ascending aorta replacement during the op but since found out i had a twist in the aorta that they managed to straighten but forgot to ask how!
I also found out something interesting as i didn't have a Bicuspid valve, i had a Quadricuspid valve (4 leaflets), but the 4 leaflets had fused into 2 so it looked like a bicuspid valve with 2 cusps around the outside of the valve instead of 3. Hope i haven't complicated things!Has anyone else heard of this? Anyway outcome good and a follow up in 12 months.
Also well done to Martina on your amazing 45km cycle, that is amazing.
Nicholae, how are you? hope you are ok? You've had a rough time, i hope things are improving for you.
