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?
