Hello all, it has been 3 months now since my surgery and got to admit this site and the people on it have helped me and my family with great information and hearing other people's experiences easier to go threw it before and after surgery. My INR is almost at a set target with taking Warfarin 6 to 8 mg pills threw the week. My chest x-ray came out great, My and wife and I got to see it pretty neat how the wires look. My incisions in stomach have some scar tissue feeling but are good. I mentioned Aviv in the title because about a month ago I started to get a skip and shortness of breath each time it happen it feel like my heart would stop. It was just small episodes usually at rest. So we called my Cardiologist and he had a Zio monitoring device sent to my home and was put on for two weeks. He said to stop drinking anything caffeinated and less chocolate. The device is sent back threw mail and waiting on results if they are gonna put me on another medication or if I'll be just fine and to kinda get used to it happening here and there. Also which is probably normal does anyone get sharp kinda stabbing pain here and there on there left side chest?
