I got endocarditis back in 09 and had to have open heart surgery to replace my aortic valve and patch up the mitrol valve. I'm having a hard time coming to terms with this and wondering if anyone else feels the same way?

Hon, it takes time to recover mentally, emotionally, physically. I got hit in 2001, and have a mechanical Mitral Valve. Take Coumadin for life. It interacts with every antibiotic except Amoxicillan and Penicillin. Also watch SSRI's I can only take Celexa. My shrink put me on a high dose of Xanax for the Cardiac Neurosis, and panic. It ruined my life, but I have bounced back. I am from England, now in the States all alone. I have no one. If the loneliness doesn't kill me maybe Coumadin will because I feel like I have a massive hole in my gut from having no one. Good luck and be well.
