    Hi. I am new here.

    Mitral valve replaced with a mechanical valve, 2007

    Pacemaker implanted, 2010

    Chronic dizziness and balance problem. Probably not related to the heart stuff.

    Gallbladder removed, 2010
    Had complications including internal bleeding/bruising,  and fluid in lungs. Was not a happy camper! Was in hospital for a month. No heart issues there as far as I know.

    Thank you for having me here.

    Randy A.

    Welcome, Randy.  You might want to check out that dizziness.  I don't know whether it takes the form of vertigo for you but, if it does, I was diagnosed with benign positional vertigo about 10 years ago and got rid of it in a week using exercises you can find on the internet.  If you're having lightheadedness, you ought to check that out with your cardiologist.
