I'm pretty much scared out of my mind.
Wow, you are in my thoughts and prayers J Diddy. I am sure it will turn out well, as the medical profession in this field has accomplished amazing things.
It has been 5 1/2 years now since I got my 4 stents and it changed my life for the better, I am much healthier now. The valve thing is more invasive, but I just had friend get a new one that is almost 70, and he did fine. You are much younger and stronger so you have an advantage.
All the best to you!
