I am into my seventh week of having my Aortic Valve replaced. The first 10 days were fine, then I got a chest infection, followed by fluid on my lung. The chest infection has been resolved, but I am still being treated for fluid. Considering the operation was seven weeks ago, I am still out of breath, I find it very difficult to walk any distance. I should have started Cardiac Rehab a month ago, but that has been put off, seems no end insight till I can be considered fully fit. Has anybody else experienced what I have gone through and any advice.
