Had a meeting with a surgeon at Glenfield Hospital last Wednesday and was told my valve needs replacing as soon as possible, I'm expecting to be admitted within 2 to 3 weeks.
I was told over 3 years ago my valve would need replacing but I've been monitored ever since. All of a sudden my valve is deteriating and now it is all so real and the time is here.
I am a strong person but I find myself getting really apprehensive about having open heart surgery. I read most posts on here and I will draw strength from you wonderful people who have already gone through this procedure.❤
