I'm 20 days post open heart aortic valve replacement and still using 2.5% 02 at night and intermittently during the day for low 02 levels. I was in excellent shape preop and didn't expect this. Any comments will be appreciated.

I was on O2 for 2 weeks after emergency mitral valve replacement; not typical circumstances in a variety of ways. They really weren't interested in sending me home until I could get off it, so I was pretty motivated, but very weak. Took a long time to really recover function, but eventually it all came around.
