I was born with aroticstynosis (still not sure how to spell that) but I had my aortic valve replaced last April. I have been having some problems, but I feel better since. I did get the pig valve…everyone teases me about it, but it's all in fun! I hope you are doing ok, if you are going to have a replacement…and I'm happy for anyone that has had replacement and is still kicking!! P.S I'm 30

I had mitrovalve replacement surgery, last month. I am 45 years old, and I have a Mechanical Heart Valve. I also am taking Coumadin(Warfarin) for the rest of my life.
