Hi Heart Chums, I've got my 6 week (which is actually 8 weeks) post op appointment with my surgeon next week. I didn't actually see him in hospital but his registrar told my husband my mitral valve repair went very well - that's as much as I know. I have a list of questions obviously relating to me (I had post op complications, pericardial effusion and lung effusion), but would be interested to know from others experiences if there's anything I should ask as I'm sure I'll have 10 minutes to grill him before I never see him again. I'm also interested to know what to expect about post op check ups, should I expect an echo annually for example?
