... june of 1992 . I had echo 4/4/17 and it is not working as should . Does anyone know if sticking flaps on the valve can be just be repaired or do they just replace valve for this kind of issue, Scared any advise is appreciated
coffee bean -
I don't know if just the valves could be repaired - it will depend on what is causing them to stick. I had an issue just 4 years after my first valve but it was tissue that was growing across the valve and so it needed to be replaced.
So good luck and hopefully yours just need some "oil" since 1992 to 2017 seems like a good run. God bless and guide your doctor's decisions.
