Heres that question again. I will soon have to decide which valve replacement i want. Ive been thinking about this for a while, and im very much leaning towards the mechanical valve. (I would like this to be a one time journey)
Im not bothered about the ticking and im not bothered about the lifetime on Warfarin. What i am borhered about is half a lifetime in a doctors waiting room.
So my question(s) are about self testing. I know i will have to by the tester myself but are the testing strips readily available on nhs prescription and can everyone do self testing? I would hate to find out afterwards that im not a suitable candidate.
