Example: My life has greatly improved since my first aortic valve replacement surgery! I am two years out and am back to running and living my normal life.
Example: My biggest challenge was learning how to keep my INR levels in range. It took some time after the surgery to get used to this. I found that a consistent diet has helped me keep my levels stable and I am able to exercise and continue to do the things I enjoy!
Example: I am very anxious to go through the process again. I continue to have a great support group and want to make sure I am making the best decision to avoid re-operations in the future.
