Hello, I was here 15 years ago, since remarried, moved to a new state and now my congenital defective mitral valve, repaired by davinci robotic procedure is leaking once again. It is leaking moderately to severely. The cardiologist has told me this time I am unable to have a repair, but must have the valve replaced with a mechanical valve. I know you will help get me through this!!

Hi Cindy,

I have the exact same situation. Have you had your surgery yet? Mine is in a couple of weeks. Thinking about you.

Not yet, I am going for the TEE on 12/3 and hope to know more soon. Good luck to you and if you will report in when you can, and let me know how you're doing. I'll will keep you in my prayers.

By the way, cp172, where did you have your original surgery? Mine was at St. Joseph's by Dr Doug Murphy. Not that it matters, I just never expected to need surgery again. It is disheartening to learn I likely will, plus I am now older. We do what we must though!!! Take good care of yourself!!!
Hey Keith.

I have talked to the Cleveland Clinic and they all my info and awaiting a call from Autumn. Since my last message I have had an echo and went from 1.1 to .8. So its time. As a backup I have an appointment with Emory Dr. Babaliaros later in June. Thanks for all the info.. If your ever up Roswell/Woodstock area let me know, Dinner on me!!
