My Heart Cath.

I have been tested so much lately it’s unreal.

The carotid artery scan last week the results were great.

I had my heart Cath on Wednesday of this week and the best thing happened to me.

My arteries are that of an 18-year-old. There were no blockages or partial blockages my arteries are perfect.

I contribute this to a change in our diets 26 years ago when my father n law had a heart attack. I made the decision at that time to stop frying so many foods and now we maybe have something fried 2 x a month.

I have young arteries and even though I will be doing heart valve replacement very soon this is such a blessing.

 

More testing

I have met with my heart surgeon who agrees with my cardiologist about the mitral valve replacement surgery.

It will be an artificial heart valve replacement and two blood thinners for the rest of my life. These typically last about 10 years.

I am having more testing done before the surgery this is to rule out any blockages. If they find any blockages that will have to be fixed before the heart valve replacement will take place.

First up Carotid artery scan this week.

Then heart catheterization and tee esophageal echo hopefully next week.

If all goes as planned I will be having surgery very soon.

I think the worst part for me will be the hospital stay since I do not like staying in a hospital much less for a week or more.

Cardiac rehab will follow me after I get out and I guess that will go on for about 6 weeks.
