i had a edwards mechanical valve put in 4-26-12 stiches cut tissue causeing a leak,dr said it would be best to replace than repair but this time i requested a bovine valve. i hate taking warfarin getting blood checked every month watching what i eat. not to mention the fear of getting cut as my hobby is woodworking i have 1000 tools that can cut.i'm not knocking the mechanical valve i just don,t like all that goes with it.had i done my research before first surgery i would have not picked the mechanical valve.
No announcement yet.
2nd surgery to replace mechanical valve with bovine valve
