Living with a Mechanical Heart Valve: Click.Tick.Thump. Love It!

Support Group for Mechanical & Artificial Heart Valve Surgery & Using Warfarin

I had my aortic valve replaced in July and generally have recovered really well. In the past I have been very fit but had to reduce my exercise significantly for the last 4 months before surgery. 12 weeks after my op I started running again and going to the gym but it seems to be a very slow improvement. Does anyone know what sort of effect a heart valve replacement has on your aerobic capacity?

Hi Peter i dont know that but i can tell you 8 months after surgery i can not run as i used to ;)

I think you need to keep your heart rate in check! Mine no more than 140 bpm
