I've got a bicuspid aortic valve & aneurysm too. The surgery and recovery absolutely terrifies me. Is it as awful as it seems?

This might be a tough one, but I have a friend on the autism spectrum who thinks they’re unemployable because of the obvious difficulties with social situations.

They’re convinced that they will never pass an interview (and have tried and failed many times.)

It’s hard to watch them feel so hopeless and it’s lead them to be in pretty dark place.

Any advice?

That's comforting. What made him wish he had done it earlier? Did he get a mechanical valve, and if so does the warfarin interfere with his day-to-day life?

Wow, I can't imagine being told I had an 8% ef...I thought 35-40% was scary.
