doing great 18 months post-op after open-heart surgery
I had surgery to replace my aortic valve plus cox-maze III procedure for afib in August 2017. This was a full sternotomy. Lots of challenges first few months including persistent case of pleural effusion (fluid around lungs). But I'm doing great now and want to encourage anyone struggling that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I'm chronicling the details at https://bionicoldguy.com. The bionic refers to the valve plus 2 previous hip replacements
