Hello, In March last year I received a new Aortic Vale (Cow), Synthetic Main Valve (Top Parchal) and a Pacemaker. My chest is still bothersome (sore) had to sleep on my side and the Pacemaker is annoying as well. My question is - How long will my chest annoy me (years?) Peter.

My husband had aortic valve replacement 12 weeks ago and he is having shortness of breath swelling in his legs and no energy. What could be causing this ? He doesn t seem any better off than he was before the surgery. He is also having excruciating pain in his legs.
