    I have unchecked all the preferences, even sent an email to the web site but they still send me daily emails. I do not wish to delete my profile, (if even that will work), but I wish it would stop. Any ideas??????? Paul

    CoaguChek xs vrs the lab... someone is wrong!

    Thanks for the information it was very informative. I was expecting a difference of at least 0.2 not 0.4. The thing that bugs me is I was 2.0 last test so they increased my dosage to 7mg 5 times a week and 6 mg twice and the result was the same.... seems kind of weird you would thing it would...

    One year today!!!!

    So here it is one year ago at 11:00am I was laying in the bed with the heating fan blanket waiting to be taken downstairs for my artificial valve. Today I am at work typing this clicking away like I have been for the last 365 days. It didn't get quieter like all the doctors said it would...

    Struggling with the loud ticking nosie

    I have been looking at valve replacement since my valve was "repaired" at age 11. I waited 39 years for science to come up with the next big thing....turns out its the same St. Jude model wittled out of wood from 1876. I dont need the "things could be worse speach" im not fricken 6 years old, my...

    Struggling with the loud ticking nosie

    Well its 3:45 am so I know what you are talking about. Its been 9 months since my mechanical aortic valve was installed, and I was told it would settle down and get quieter.....NOT! I sleep with four pillows, one under my chin, over my head, hell any place just to shut the dam thing up. The...

    First Cold with the new Artificial valve

    So I have logged about 5 months on the new Artificial valve and everyone around me is coughing and sneezing. Last night I could feel the scratch throat coming on. So what is the process? When does a person go to the doctor for antibiotic to protect the heart? Wait for a fever? Start...

    Mechanical Valve or Tissue Valve ?

    I have my meeting with the surgeon on Monday so I hope all my questions will be answered by him then. It just feels like everyone was so gung hoe to get me into surgery but after it was over they all dissapeared and I have to figure everything out on my own. God knows the internet just makes...

    Mechanical Valve or Tissue Valve ?

    I am three months out of surgery with an artifical aortic valve. I have been banging and clicking away like crazy, developed afib (something I had to figure out on my own at home ) and am taking 160 mg of sotalol twice a day, my leg still has that dead frozen felling from the incision for the by...

    Bentall Procedure

    Just turned 50. Going to be on warfarin so I guess enjoying a Jamaican rum buzz by the pool is out of the question from now on.

    Bentall Procedure

    This will be my second surgery, the first at age 11 with a bicuspid repair, now the replacement. The quick five min talk after my angiogram didn't quite get all my questions answered. All I know is he doesn't want to go in for a third time and repair the root. I am assuming that life after...

    Bentall Procedure

    Just got back from my angiogram, spoke with the surgeon and he said I will require a root replacement as well as an artificial aortic valve. He refered to it as the Bentall Procedure. I was just expecting a valve replacement but when they took the measurements the root has to go as well. That...
