Can anyone tell me about how long to expect between meeting with cardiologist and when surgery is done? Thank you!

I was diagnosed nearly 9 years ago and sice that time have a stent and bundle bridge block diagnosed. I see my cardiologist annually and some years I have seen him more frequently. He did a TEE 3, maybe 4 years ago with no problems found. In February I had a heart catheterization because the nuclear stress test indicated a possible blockage, but showed problems with the mitral valve instead. I had a TEE a day later and he detirmined the septal wall had thickened significantly and I was referred to Mayo Rochester for surgery.
I am waiting to be called for an appointment or whatever is next.
