Double Valve Replacement

I had double valve replacement surgery Sept 07 so am still in the long run recovery. Am so much better than ever expected and getting better all the time. I just feel alone about all this and have no contact with anyone of any age who has had the same. The Aortia valve did not immediately require replacement but I was assurred would do so in a year or so and advised to have it done at the same time as Mitral to save me the trauma of repeated surgery. Has anyone , anyone had the same. Still get hit in the face sometimes by the enormity of it all and the alternative but am doing ok.

" I had a double valve replacement 15 years ago, plus Maze for chronic afib. My valves are mechanical, so I am on coumadin for life. This surgery was a big deal, but it also gave me my life back. Your post was 4 years ago. If you are still with DS, hope you are doing well. "
