In 2003 ,I had a quadruple bypass and mitral valve replacement..a st judes mechanical valve.
In hospital 7 days, 3 months basic rcoup, but aches and pains for at least a yr as chest settles. Coumadin daily for thinning so no clots on valve, some meds for afib which occur often after OHS..I have sever CAD,PVD..so in my case its a tad different, but most VR's feel much better.Oh and I was 46 at time of surgery. Hope this helps.Kemper]

Re: Mitrol value replacement/repair

I am 10 years older than your husband and my doc told me that I will likely need a valve replacement at some point and not to wait until my heart starts failing. It is probably worth doing if you husband is healthy otherwise and his heart still pumps well.

Re: Mitrol value replacement/repair

I had my aortic valve replaced. It's been almost 5 years (now 51) and I"m fine. Valve disease is serious stuff, no doubt, but outcomes are typically very good. There is lots of information on line. Do a search for Valve Replacement.
