    you will be fine Wello,

    my Mum had one done over 20 years ago and She's been fine ever since, She was actually in for a knee op and during the preop they discovered the leaky valve and did that instead. She wasnt phased 1 bit about a knee op after the valve op and was home 2 days later

    ok so the trip to the cardio didnt go as i expected/hoped.. mitral valve is damaged and leaking to pretty much the maximum extend .. so it either try and repair or fit a new metal valve ... either way its open heart surgery.. FUCK !!

    Jeez mate sorry to hear. As ordinary as open heart surgery is it’s still way better than the alternative. Good luck with it

    Open heart surgery is as routine as a cam upgrade in a late model Harley these days Wello, you'll be fine. All the very best wishes to you for when it happens.

    Open hart surgery, sounds horrific Wello, I googled it, talked with my mother, then a mate that had a stent, you will be in and out of hospital in no time.
