Tinsley -- if you're in the U.K., the meter that I have won't be right for you. I don't know if you can get Coag-Sense strips in the U.K. and your medical system seems to have standardized on the CoaguChek XS and a newer version.

If,OTOH, you're in Massachusetts, my Coag-Sense would be a pretty good choice.
I had surgery on January 7, 2020. At CPMC Van Ness in San Francisco, California, Dr. Glenn Egrie replaced my leaky aortic valve with a St. Jude Regent 23mm mechanical valve. My surgery seems to have gone well, and I returned home for my recovery on Saturday, January 11th. My family and friends have been very supportive during my surgery and recovery, and I'm grateful to them.

I'm also grateful to this community, valvereplacement.org, for the knowledge, wisdom, and support its members provide those going through pre-surgery, surgery, and its aftermath.

Hey Superbob! Thanks for checking up 😊 I’m going great. For some reason, ever since Hank started talking about shutting down the site way back when, I haven’t felt inclined to pop in. I have no idea why. But I will try to check in on Staying the Course more often 🥰

Scheduled for Jan. 7, 2020 aortic valve surgery: either repair or replacement with mechanical valve -- not determined yet.
I was hospitalized 2xs past 2 months for afib. 2echos at 2 diff hospitals showed aortic diameter at 5,4. I am looking for BSA calculator that use to be in this forum, I also have BAV VSD ASD and have had 2 coarc repairs in past. I see a surgeon this week but would like to have as much info as possible before appt. CT will be done at this appt.
