Re: aortic valve calcification
Hi, I'm so sorry to hear that. Have they told you why you can't have a valve replacement? Mydad is 84 years old and he has calcification of his aortic valve and they tell us that there is nothing they can do for that but the valve replacement surgery. Maybe there's another type of procedure or maybe you qualify for robatic surgery or a less evasive surgery. You need to ask your cardiologist about other procedures or options. Please let me know what they say. I sort of understand since our dad has a similar problem and we are all dealing with the stress but it does not compare to what you are going through. Wish there was more help I could give.
