Hi everyone!

I am Montana Marci......I am a two-time cancer survivor. At age 16 I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma went through radiation and chemotherapy. In 2010 I was diagnosed with stage IIIC rectal cancer. Treated once again with radiation and chemotherapy. I also became a ostomate due to the rectal cancer. Currently recovering from TAVR surgery. Due to the radiation to my chest for Hodgkins I have stenosis of all my heart valves. So far I have had the Aortic valve replaced and three stents put in....in March. Looking forward to meeting you all!

Hi Montana, so sorry you have had to go through all of this. I also had radiotherapy for Hodgkins (when I was 19) and am having my aortic valve replaced in February. I had a stent put in in October.

Can you tell me more about your surgery? Did it go well? I'm having open heart surgery, but seems you had a TAVI.

Wishing you all the best
