It's now 12 months since my surgery to repair my mitral valve.
This was done minimal access through my right nipple (incredible I know).
I really don't know where to start but I am so grateful to all at Blackpool hospital for everything they have done for me.
I can't thank Mr Zacharias and his team enough as they literally saved my life.
I'm a 47 year old firefighter and returned to full duties only 3 months after my surgery.
Anyone facing the same op feel free to ask as I'll answer any questions with honesty.
Does it hurt? Yes!!
Are there bad days? Yes
Is it all worth it in the end? YES YES YES!
Stay strong x
