revvy, glad to hear you are getting the less invasive one. my brother had the full open sternum and got the synthetic valve. it was even more invasive for him than it should have been... you can do it! good luck with everything.

Head up, my friend. You'll feel so much better afterward. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

I was feeling a little sorry for myself because am having a disc in my spine replaced until i see what a real surgery looks like. Good luck and return soon.. "my airlock stopped, is it done?" threads won't be the same until your back and feel better!

Good luck Revvy, my brother just had his heart valve repaired. The doc told us he would try to repair instead of replace and so far so good. If my brother can pull thru (man does he have a boatload of challenges going on) then you will said thru.

It sounds as though the level of certainty is high, which is a good thing. And this is not 1970, so the operation will be easy-peasy. Somewhere around late Feb, you'll have all kinds of time to spend on the Beginner's forum - Lord knows they need it - I think we got a new crop there!

Do what the docs tell ya, but I gotta think this is all good stuff - scary, but good.

Thoughts and prayers for you, young feller!

Scary road to travel, but a great place to be in the end.

Keep us posted, good luck! We will be thinking about you.
