Smile Need Info on mech aortic valve sounds

hi...i am awaiting valve surgery in about 10 days...the surgeon gave me all the pros and cons of biologic aortic valves vs mechanical valves....He uses the St Jude Mechanical not worried about taking coumadin but what concerns me is what some mechanical valve recipients regard as annoying sounds of the clicking valve......does anyone here have a recent St Jude mechanical valve and could let me know how they feel about any sound the valve makes? thanks a lot....ill be hanging out
