Well, I made it to 19 years, not long after 09-11-2001 when I had my Aortic Valve Replacement. So happy that answers are being answer after so many years on my legs. No more guessing. But happy anyway.
Yes, and next year you have to have a BIG celebration for #20. This forum is a great resource, not only for newbies and future AVRs, but also to those of us who have many years behind us. Yes, 19 years later there are still questions and there is usually someone here who has good info and advice.
