Does size of new valve effect one's latest competition!

Post by haggis basher on Fri Dec 04, 2015 8:00 pm

I must admit this has puzzled me ever since my op in 2011.I had a 23mm tissue valve installed, which I thought was much too small! I was a 'decent' long distance runner for most of my life, and expected something larger. After reading some comments by ljoan, I was wondering whither this might have "stunted" my performances.I don't have much communication with my surgeon, as I nearly died waiting for my operation, and never got in touch with him since.
Might ask my cardiologist when I see him next year.
What do others think about this.

Yes Dave, that would be fine. Must admit I am not too good on the computer, although I have managed to get my 'facebook' up and working.Not too well at present, spent week in Hospital, now lower back into terrible 'spasm'.
