I had an aneurysm repaired along with a replacement of my valve (mechanical). I was just curious how many others out there that have had similiar procedures limit the amount of sodium the consume each day. And, if so, what do you try to stay under. My surgeon says I should maintain a heart healthy sodium intake, while my cardiologist says I do not need to. I try to stay under 2000 mg of sodium for the day, but it is really hard to do.
