Hello all again,
Just a little update.
I have had 2 postponements since july and i have not heard any different from the hospital so i will be having my mitral valve replaced tomorrow in the afternoon.
Very scared now,my daughter is 15 and is devastated but hoping its for a better life for us both being 45 and been ill for most of her life.
Thank you all for the support since i joined here,its been very hard for me to find and talk to anyone who has had this op done.
I will update when i can,facing cicu and hdu first but i will be always happy to share my experience with anyone who faces this.
Mine was caused from Strep throat leading to rheumatic fever and has only taken about 7 years to damage my mitral valve to the point of being replaced..severe mitral stenosis.
Good luck to anyone else having surgery soon too
