Very sorry to hear that, @Duffey
Sending condolences and the very best to your husband.
Such difficult times.
Very sorry to hear that, @Duffey
Im in the UK too and my surgery was meant to be about now but I can't get to speak with anyone about it. My GP has written to surgeon in hope of some kind of reply. However you say yours won't be until next year now. How do you feel about that. Have you been advised it can go that long? Im quite scared.been indoors for 2 weeks now...just going into the garden for a few hours for fresh air
doing a little work from home
been using my home gym alot...did another 10km this morning
aortic valve replacement that was due in the 1st half of this year, is ofcourse now postponed probably until next year
I'm single ... my wife were she still here would probably freak at some of my current activities (if not my PPE selection ;-)anyone else here struggling with being single. I hear a lot of people using the word we I'm assuming they have a family or their coupled up. Would love to hear from the single people.

Your Scooter would get eaten alive by the potholes around here! Our seasonal freeze/thaws and penny wise, pound foolish road repair approach makes the birthplace of the affordable mass produced automobile home to some of the worst roads in the USA!I'm single ... my wife were she still here would probably freak at some of my current activities (if not my PPE selection ;-)
Thank you and I hope you remain well and asymptomatic. I have some breathlessness ie can't walk as far but it has always been difficult to assess as I have quite bad arthritis in my legs so that pain stops me really testing it out. I feel quite well like you. I have been under surveillance because I had the CT scan ready for surgery and it showed a few other things up and they should be okay now. Then of course this.Hi
I've been advised my the cardiac specialist nurses that all no critical surgery has been cancelled (presumably until this pandemic is under control, and medical staff and facilities are freed up).
I'm guessing that wont be until v late this year.
At present even though the level of stenosis is classified as severe, I'm asymptomatic. In fact I'm feeling v healthy and fit at present. Hopefully I stay like this another year in the lead up to the op !
It's a scary time for all of us I agree. I'd just try and relax as much as possible and just concentrate on things you can control .
BTW. where about in the UK are you based? The people you should be in contact with with regards to your heart upcoming surgery in the NHS are the specialist cardiac nurses. You should have a contact number for them.
North Korea executed a patient who tested positive for going outside his home...I live in Asia, lived in China---I can guarantee the #'s are much high both for death and total cases....the bastards caused this by slaughtering animals..Another reason I am glad I become Vegan 2 months ago...They rule with an iron fist and control information the same way. We have no way of knowing what their numbers are. Just what they tell us they are. China has stopped the spread or stopped sharing info?
Couldn’t help but notice North Korea has 0 cases. Perhaps Kim Jong-un’s style of leadership is something we could all benefit from?
We can all play Monday morning quarterback on this. Look at the mortality rates? A few days old. Is it driven by who’s testing? Quality of treatment? Where the illness is located?

I’m “social distancing” from my husband. He was exposed to an ICU patient who has been tested for Covid-19 but results aren’t back yet. The hospital’s infectious control nurse said we should maintain 6’ of distance, sleep in different rooms, use separate bathrooms. I’m upstairs, he’s downstairs, and the dog is so confused as to where he should sleep!
suits me ... its been a good run, happy to die in a nasty tangle rather than like the people I used to see daily in my work as a tech in Nurse Call and Duress alarm systems.My wife would also point out that choice of activities is the reason single men, on average, don’t live as long as married men.
