First off, congrats on the successful operation.

Second: apologies in advance for the selfish question related to myself, but it's an AMA and you have valuable experience so I hope you'll forgive me. I'm also 30 and I have the same sort of valve. My dad got his replaced in his mid 40s. His doctor (and now also my doctor) told me that a lot of people have these valves and only a small percentage of those people need them replaced. Did you hear something similar? Were you aware of this condition before this event?
