Has anyone had a TAVR? I had one last September. I just got a smart phone/internet access and found this site. I am doing "fine" but it hasn't been completely problem-free. Glad to be here!

Good morning! I am so sorry you had to experience this! What kind of problems have you experienced after they placed the TAVR? Thanks Katie

Howdy, Congrats on your TAVR and glad you got connected to the AHA Support Network! It is a very good place to communcate with other people with similar health issues! I had my TAVR three years ago...last month! You are right...I am completely fine too but will always have small chronic issues along the way! Congrats again! Tom B PS...I included a recent interview/article with my TAVR surgeon...

Welcome to the support network. So happy that you are here and gave us a reach out. You will find that you are among a group of heart warriors that are each other’s support for the journey ahead. While I have not had TAVR, rather a repair via open heart surgery to my mitral valve, I can say that heart patients share allot of the same concerns even though our valve expereiences may be different. Please feel free to share as you are comfortable, and know that we welcome you with heart. ❤️
