Hi everyoneI found out I have a bicuspid valve and aortic aneurysm about 4 years ago while living in Southern California. As it worsened, I got too scared to go through such a huge surgery without my family so I moved back to Ohio to get it done at Cleveland Clinic last year.
i had my surgery on March 10 and had complete heart block after surgery. Ended up staying in ICU for ten days and ultimately got a pacemaker as well.I thought in the four years I had to prepare, I was all ready, but nothing went as planned of course and I had not planned on the mental/emotional toll this would take on me at all. What an experience.Im happy to have found this group. I've been home for three days recovering and processing what I just went through. Happy to meet you all.ChristyColumbus Ohio
