Try searching for valves in the search box.

I think " notlocal " has done some threads on it as they had it done.

If you need any help finding the members posts feel free to ask me for help.


Thank you I'l. Have a look x


You should call your surgeon or his secretary. They will be able to tell you how things should go. Remember everyone is different and we all heal at different speeds.


I contacted my surgeon earlier who said it could take 4-6 weeks before I feel better but at least it'. Put my mind at rest thank you for your reply x
