Exactly 1 week ago I met my surgeon. I really nice lady who put me at ease and explained everything I needed to know about Aortic Valve Replacement and after some discussion we decided upon opting for a bovine tissue valve.
I attended the appointment with my husband who’s been a great support since this all began. He’s been quite anxious about this situation I find myself in and so it was important that he was also able to ask my surgeon questions too.
When the appointment letter arrived my stomach churned. Most of the time I’m quite sensible about having surgery but every now and again that niggly little worry worm gets into my head...............
I’m actually away on holiday as I type. I had a phone call from the hospital today asking me come in for a CT Scan, I’m also waiting for an appointment with the Anaesthetist to arrive. My surgeon wants to operate in August. I know this surgery will help and I’m so so grateful but I can’t help feeling a little bit apprehensive. Ive read so many blogs from people in the same situation and I think most feel a bit like me. So today I’m a wimp but hopefully tomorrow I’ll be Mrs Sensible again. 🌸
