It is a pig valve.
veteran7275 says; I had a double heart bypass in 1992, after which i got intense heart burn(indigestion), went back to my cardiologist they determined that I got a hiatial hernia from the operation, still have. prescribed
original zantex pills 75mg 2x/ day, after about 3yrs, it was ineffective, they then put me on omaperzole, still using, they are 20mg 2x/day works really well, you might ask your doctor about the hernia, and see if they can put you on one of the many pro-tronixs, zantex, or omaperzole, anti- indigestion medications. I doubt that a pig valve has anything to do with your problem unless it is a rejection issue with your body and the valve itself, again I am not a doctor so my opinion is not quotable, go get a professional opinion, that might be a more valuable answer than I have given you, stay healthy my friend, good luck.
