LVR using Valves

Hi all,not been on for a long time i have been fighting the NHS for funding for a LVR using valves as i am reluctant to have the cut...i finally got this last month and i am booked in for the left Lung on the 8th of next month ...i would be interested to hear from anyone having had this done so i can know what to expect and any tips on a speedy recovery after the op....thank you in advance Andrea

There's a member who's had it done in this link but if you type " valves " in the search box there are quite a few posts about it. I hope that helps.
