Well howdy all. Had my valve replacement Thursday morning and all went well. Have a new 23mm OnX valve ticking away. First 2 days were pretty rough, mostly from the drainage tubes which were removed a few hours ago and now I'm feeling very normal. A few more days to stabilize a bit, getting my heparin shots and starting the warfarin. Hopefully get to head out in Tuesday or Wednesday. Definitely built it up to be way worse then it was.
