im new to the site but thought i would post as would like other peoples perspective.
i have had 4 valve replacements in the last 14 years (3 aoritc and 1 mitral) all open heart and have recently been told that my mitral needs doing again and very quickly.
im only 52 and have learnt to accept my fate to some degree as its out of my control and seem to have convinced everyone around me of the same, to stop them worrying. however, i am worried this time as i have also had endocarditis and have a feeling of uncertainty that ive not really had before. has anyone else had multiple surgeries and what have you used to cope? think i just need to get some perspective from someone who has been through the same as i think youll all agree, anyone that hasnt experienced this, doesnt always understand. any thoughts?
