    Thank you all. The TAVR is not a new procedure, but currently it is only approved for elderly or very infirm patients who cannot withstand open heart surgery. DH is in a trial for younger, healthy people , to see how long the valves will last. We are hoping he will get 12 years out of it.

    I know you were both hoping he would be able to have this done rather then the tradition way. You must be so happy he qualified for the clinical trail!

    Keeping you both in my thoughts tomorrow.

    I just brought hubby home - 48 hours after having aortic valve replacement! By looking at him, you would not even know he had heart surgery. He has no chest pain, just sore groins. He feels his heart is pounding, but they told him his heart had to beat so hard while his valve was bad, just to get his blood pumping, that it will take awhile before it calms down and "realizes" it doesn't have to work so hard. What a remarkable medical procedure.
    Thank you all for your good wishes.
