First of all I’d like to thank everyone who responded to my post. The support people give on this forum is amazing.
Apologies for the late post, but I have had a couple of terrible days, and not due to the operation! I have an intolerance to some painkillers (like many people) and they made me quite ill. And I was worried about the AVR and double bypass!
I’ve been put on warfarin for three months, so this morning they came to test my blood (can’t remember what the test name). Anyway the machine kept timing out, so the nurse tried it four times! She came back and tried again a bit later - same thing, four times. Not good for someone who doesn’t like needles!
Apart from that everything seems fine. I have the day four tests tomorrow, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
Will post an update ASAP.
Thanks again you wonderful people.
