    I had an aortic dissection repair 5 weeks ago and a mechanical valve placed. I would like to know, for those of you with a mechanical aortic valve, if the ticking gets better, or
    do you just learn to live with it? Also, if anyone has day-to-day life changes, which seem to be more permanent, I'd like to hear about those too.

    Thanks,
    Merceda
