Heart Valve Replacement

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After a Heart Valve Replacement Surgery

A heart valve replacement surgery is a surgery where the time taken to show the results may vary from person to person.

Many people experience relief from symptoms right away and for others it takes time for a change to be noticeable. Your

doctor would be the right person to help you evaluate your conditions after the surgery but here are some general things

which hold true for most patients.

HOW SOON AFTER SURGERY CAN I RESUME NORMAL ACTIVITY?

Your recovery depends on various things, including your overall physical condition. Typically, recovery takes anywhere

between 8 to 12 weeks. Recovery before 8 weeks is rare. As pointed out above, some patients recover faster, some take

longer time. During this time, you gradually recover your strength and will be able to return to your normal routine.

IF I HAVE A MECHANICAL HEART VALVE IMPLANTED, WILL I NEED TO TAKE MEDICATIONS AFTER MY SURGERY?

Yes, you will need to take medicines after your surgery. Most importantly, these medications will depend on your overall

health and the particular nature of your valve disease. Since you have a mechanical valve, your doctor will prescribe a blood

thining medicine that you’ll need to take for the rest of your life. This medication helps prevent the formation of blood clots,

which are a serious health risk.

one side effect of this medicine is that since

One side effect of this medicine is that since it helps to prevent clotds by delaying the blood coagulation process, any

wounds will take a little longer than normal to heal. It is important to take the medicines as instructed by the doctor and

regularly.

Henceforth, you need to very careful whenever you have another surgery or even dental work. Simply cleaning your teeth

could also release bacteria that could find their way to your heart valve and cause an infection. Your dentist needs to know

that you have a artificial heart valve.

ARE THERE ANY COMPLICATIONS WITH HEART VALVE REPLACEMENT SURGERY?

Although there is nothing to be afraid of complications may sometimes arise if there are repeated surgeries. It is best to

discuss your situation with your doctor to know about individual risks, benefits and possible complications.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO REMAIN HEALTHY WITH MY REPLACEMENT HEART VALVE?

Take all your medications exactly as prescribed.

Any symptoms that result in any dramatic changes such as weight gain, fever or pain need to be consulted with your doctor

immediately.

Eat a low-salt diet if your doctor prescribes one for you.

Bring exercise into your life

Inform your doctor about your lifestyle changes

DO HEART VALVES MAKE ANY NOISE?

A heart valve is mechanical so it is absolutely normal for it to make a little noise. When the valve opens and closes, you may

hear two distinct clicking sounds. This is normal. This is a sign that means that the valve is working normally.

HOW LONG DO TISSUE HEART VALVES LAST?

Thankfully, tissue valves wear out slowly just like natural valves and therefore usually lat between 7 to 15 years but your

age and health play a large part in how long your valve will last. A discussion with your doctor will give you a better idea

about the longevity of your valve.
