I suppose all good things must come to an end as I was recently diagnosed with serious regurg in my tissue valve which has served me well for 13 years. This is my first time back on this site in 12 years, it was so helpful to me back then. Based on reading only a few posts, I am reading here that replacing my tissue valve with another tissue valve via a TAVR procedure may only last 5-10 years instead of the 10-15 I got on the first valve. When people quote the 5-year figure, is that for TAVR when it's the first procedure done, or for tissue valves inserted into already-surgically implanted tissue valves? **Also - any recommended questions for the doctor whom I meet next week? Thank you.
