Hello, my name is Joe. I had AVR #2 one week ago today. My ejection fraction had dropped from 40% to now 30% since surgery.

The doctors and surgeon said it will likely come up in the coming months and hopefully get to 50%+ in the next 6-12 months.

I'm not sure if I believe this fully. I figured EF would automatically be better the second the new valve took place.

Does anyone have any input or personal stories on this, whether it be good or bad news.

Thank you 🙏
