Support Group for Mechanical & Artificial Heart Valve Surgery & Using Warfarin
Saw the cardiac surgeon earlier this week at Leeds. I now have my op date - August 28th. Sooner than I thought. He will try for repair first but if not a mechanical heart valve seems the better choice. Find myself in a bit of a spin and trying to get organised. I think alot of displacement activity is going on! Wondered if anyone had been told that a mitral valve repair would be tried for, but ended up with a mechanical heart valve?
Any practical tips on getting prepared for surgery? Also any tips on becoming less tearful and more serene!
Thanks for any advice at this stage.
