Yes most definitely, your heart is not working not put it off because you are scared about being told you could need surgery to replace the valve...The actual surgery and recovery is nowhere near as bad as you imagine. Visit this website for an inside look at the lives of those who have had the surgery and some who are still waiting for it. I had my Aortic valve replaced with a mechanical one almost 3 years ago and honestly I am as good as new or even better....
