This is my first post here. I've done a search of this and read around, and here's my question. I'm looking to gauge the views of others in a similar situation.
I'm 28. I was born with Fallots, full correction at 11 months old, nothing since then till last few years. Put on Bisoprolol, spironolactone, furosemide, and had an ICD put in last year.
I've been told I'll need a pulmonary valve replacement. My question is, if I get the option, metal or prosthetic at this stage?
Metal = one surgery, but drugs for rest of life.
Prosthetic = potentially 5 or 6 more surgeries, but lack of drugs.
What's the 'better' option? What has anyone else experienced?
