Hi All, don't normally post just read what others have put, however need some advice. I'm 36 years old and had a pacemaker implanted in 2018 due to heart block. But now have severe aortic stenosis with severe aortic regurgitation, I need to have AVR with ascending aorta replacement (hopefully not root replacement as well).
I have been to see the surgeon and its been decided that I get a mechanical valve and use warfarin. I have my pre op appointment towards the end of Feb 2021 and might ask them about the other drugs that could take, although I know that they are 20x more expensive than warfarin.
Just wanted to know if people have advice or tips of that they found helped them pre or post op?
