Hello all who are still following my journey ,
as you may or may not be aware i am diagnosed with mitral valve regurgitation and a very rare condition that is a cleft found in the posterior leaflet of my heart.
They want to do open heart sugery on me while im under 19 so i'm young and will recover quicker. however i have difficult choice , do i have it this year and risk not being able to recover in time to start my uni course? or do i postpone it until next year and risk not having the support or help from the uni with getting a job or apprentiship? both of these have negatives and positives and it is really hard to weigh up both for me .
Most 17 year olds are choosing what party to go to nex weekend . i'm having to choose this. Its not just effecting my physical but also my mental health so on that hand id rather get it done but if i dont recover in time for the uni foundation course - the cost goes up by £5000 and thats just something neither me or my family have
any help and or support is much appreciated - if not cat pictures are also welcomed
