First of all, I want to say thank everyone on this support page. Leading up to my surgery, I read all of the discussions and reactions to help best prepare me...
I had surgery on March 15th. They called the procedure, "Repair of Partial Atrioventicular Canal with Atrioventricular Valve Repair."
I arrived at the hospital at 5AM. I came to terms with the surgery and was ready. Surgery was moved up early to 7:00AM. The surgery lasted longer than normal because they also had to fix some things from my parcarditis that I had 5 years ago. The surgery went well.
I was released from the hospital yesterday.I was in ICU just after the procedure and was able to get a room the next day. I was up and walking on my own. I have had some side effects from the pain meds but I am dealing with them.
Today was a great day. I am on the road to recovery!
