    Just diagnosed with Aortic Aneurysm and leaking Aortic Valve

    85 Silent Migraines Since Surgery 10/2018

    I’ve had migraines with aura (and always a post aura throbbing headache) on and off since pre-pubescence. At times they are very regular with several a week - sometimes twice a day. Then other times quite a few months can pass without issue. Last week I had two in one day. The first for weeks...

    Possible strep throat and ensuing problems was Question about Omeprazole

    Oh no ... sorry to hear this, Anne. Really hope the Lansoprazole helps settle things down quickly and you can start regaining that lost weight. It’s good the gastro is seeing you sooner rather than later and you’re not left in limbo for too long. Fingers crossed things improve over the next...

    Possible strep throat and ensuing problems was Question about Omeprazole

    Hi Anne Apologies for the slow reply. Just catching up. Sorry to hear about your recent troubles. Sounds like a real struggle. When I was put on daily aspirin post surgery I was told to take Omeprazole to aid aspirin ingestion and prevent stomach upset. I was on a 20mg once-a-day dose. In...

    AVR tomorrow

    Welcome Home @Astro! I’d got myself a comfy electric recliner for my first post surgery weeks at home. Was a tremendous help for getting myself into the correct posture for relatively painless sleeping and resting. I never had it reclined flat at all. Always at an angle I felt comfortable with...

    Aortic valve repair or replacement, early 2020

    Greetings John ... and welcome to the forum! I had a murmur since childhood ... some doctors heard it, many didn’t. No one thought to investigate down the years what caused it. In 2015, aged 56, my bicuspid was ‘discovered’ during a routine echo for the increasing heart palpitations I’d been...

    my time has come

    As you’ve probably discovered, there’s unlimited stories and advice on valve choices here. It’s a global oracle of wisdom and support. I often wonder how I’d have been pre (and post) surgery had this forum not existed. It‘s great you’re being monitored closely and in good time and given a...

    Daily Aspirin Post Aortic Valve Replacement

    325 mg a day for 17 years! That is impressive ... and very reassuring. Especially the “... no ill effects”. Thank you @dornole 🙂

    Daily Aspirin Post Aortic Valve Replacement

    Hi @Protimenow Good to hear the enteric isn’t causing any issues long term. I may eventually switch to that. I’m imagining the ‘dispersible’ (it’s how it’s spelt on the box here 🙂) aspirin is absorbed quicker, but I can’t be sure of that. Having said that, I’ve just read this...

    Daily Aspirin Post Aortic Valve Replacement

    Hi @Suckyvalvegurl I imagined I’d only be on it short term ... say, three months or so, like you. But the surgeon said it was needed long term as a clot preventative. I‘ve not had to take any other meds post surgery (other than the omeprazole) so was feeling quite lucky it was just aspirin...
