Hey Richard

Welcome to the group! I think most of relate to the 'walking to the shops' comment! Hope all goes smoothly wiht your eventual valve replacement. As Richard said dont be afraid to ask any of us any questions, opinions - whatever. We are all here to help you - and each other!

hey richard,
welcome to the group! i was also a sufferer of bicuspid valve disorder, but mine culminated in an aortic dissection, so you are lucky that you are "scheduled" for the replacement!
make yourself at home, post a bit about yourself in the blog section and chip in to some of the ongoing forum discussions...
good to have you here! take care,
