Hello Divmercy, My story is as follows: I was seeing a cardiologist for a long while and asked him for a catherization as i wasn”t feeling great. I didn”t want a stress test. He said i was fine but showed me a drawing with my aortic valve damaged and said “no problem”.
well, i was 73 and didn”t want problems later when my heart was damaged . I made an appointment with my Surgeon who did my open heart(double coronary bypass in 2005} surgery and he said”Frank you won”t last two or three years and it will be limited”. I want you to see Dr.. x for a second opinion. they tested me and i had a new aortic valve inserted thru my femoral artery and was home at 1pm the next day. please,if you are still in good shape have it done. they can do the aortic and mitral valve thru the artery. I hope this short story will help you make a wise decision.
