Re: aortic valve replacement
Hi woolfo999, i am 75 and i had AVR Jan this year, was in hosp 10 days and contacted phneumonia as a bonus, i also needed both hips replaced and it was decided the aortic valve was more important. What i strongly suggest is that you take very seriously the advise you will be given and carry out to the letter, because the last thing you want is to be taken back in because you done something you should not have done and the new valve has torn . After you r discharge you will be nearly back to normal in about 6/8 weeks, so be patient and take your time. call me if you need any more info jungle jim
