TAVR Implant Completed
So I had my TAVR implanted yesterday without issue. I already feel better and can breath deeper and have more energy. I'm sure that will continue in the weeks to come.
Pretty much right after my implant, my BP increased which they said is normal. While getting ready for discharge, I had a very short bout of VT that I barely felt, but they saw it on their monitors and wanted to make sure it wasn't valve related. They said it wasn't. Possibly just the heart being pissed about all the fast changes? Anyway, between that and my BP, they increased my coreg dose to 6.?? mg and will monitor anymore episodes. Hoping that was a fleeting one!
Anyway, overall I feel much better. I have some slight pain in the groin catherter incision but that is to be expected.
No real increase in heart function yet, but time will tell.
Thanks for reading and for this great site!

I have an ICD which is both a pacer/defib. I have no problems with mine and it has saved my life.
