I just joined the mayo clinic connect and want to say hello.I had a mitral valve repair , 5 weeks ago,carried out in the heart center of the cologne university. they did it by a minithoracotomy at the right site (i.e. NO sternotomy). yesterday I had my first control by my own cardiologist.he was very impressed, an ablatio was also done.for the next three months I need a “bloodthinner”.what happens afterwards, I don’t know. I hope to find answers from other patients, how they will be treated after these 3 months.
I am dutch, but I have been living in Germany since 1970.
