Hello Ma'am

After reading your query i can understand your concern. I want to tell you that there is no relationship between a MITRAL VALVE REPAIR and MOOD SWINGS. Although some patients do suffer from PSYCHOSIS after having a prolonged stay in ICU or after a surgery which usually get recovered completely once the patient is out of the hospital.

So i would like to suggest you to consult some PSYCHIATRIST for the problem.

Good Luck
