heart valve surgery

i had a ring placed around the tricuspid valve sept 7th. Whats the typical recovery time with this type of surgery. I still can't drive and am on a 10 lb lift limit. Also suppose to keep my heart rate down but mine wants to stay 100 plus without exercise. I would be thankful for any info

Re: heart valve surgery

I think I could not drive for 3 months so that my breastbone could fully heal. Talk to your doc about your heart rate.
