Goodbye Everyone

Rather than just disappear, I'd like to say thanks to everyone who gave me help, taught me stuff, the many friendly members.



I was wrong. Thanks for the correction. The warning was only for patients with chronic kidney disease who also have AF.


thanks for your concerns.

IF I go with the Abbott TenDyne minimally invasive mitral valve, they would put me on Warfarin to prevent blood clots.

It's a Clinical Trial, after many tests, critical measurements, hospital is about to submit data to 3rd party for review. 

All indicators suggest I will be deemed acceptable for the trial. Used in Europe, only 2 years trial data USA.

I want to consider open heart surgery, tried and true metal/pig/cow valve. My GP says I am moderate risk for OHS. Isn't everybody 75 yrs old Moderate Risk?

I can see how pigs and cows could have a grudge against me, but don't they have short memories?
