My answers are the same as most of the others. I have the OnX, 3 months, I feel 100%. I am 58. I had thought that if I was 65 I would have gotten the bio valve but in retrospect that would have been a mistake IMHO. Mechanical is tried and true and lasts.

All these other options just reduce your life expectancy, in exchange for… what? You get to eat kale, binge drink and have more heart surgery?

The warfarin is no big deal. You just need to be consistent. The dreaded clicking is a nothing burger. I hear it when it’s quiet but I actually like it.
