    Your advice is sought!

    I had my surgery done at Stanford. Wonderful Surgeon, nurses, the way they treated me the patient but my family members also. Would recommend Stanford for heart surgery to anyone that needs it done.

    Lumps and bruises

    I think things jump out at me when I'm not looking to give me bruises that unexplainable. Sometimes I get alot sometimes not. Sometimes big or small.

    81 mg aspirin no longer recommended?

    My Cardiologist has never said for me to stop taking it. What can it hurt? So why the uproar about it. If your Cardiologist days you don't need it the don't take it. I've been taking it for 14years I don't have a problem with it. Guess it's your own performance.

    St Jude Valves

    I have two mechanical valves since 2006. Have had no problems. Think St. Jude's is a great choice.

    20 days postop still on 02

    I was on oxygen all the way up to surgery. Surgeon said it was too keep my lungs healthy and not put strain on heart. After surgery never had oxygen again. Never had a problem with my lungs since. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers Duffy.

    New Coag-Sense meter

    I love my INR machine..I do the testing every morning and report it to the Doctor. As long as I'm in range there's no problem. Out of range might need adjusting. Better then going to the lab every week..Best machine invented. 😊

    Tricuspid valve repair

    Tomorrow I go see my Cardiologist. About the next step on getting my Tricuspid valve repaired..I have been looking into the Robotic procedure.
