Why did they give you a mechanical valve vs. a pig / bio valve?
I have a heart problem and they shy away from giving mechanical valves because of the lifetime meds and complications. They typically do mechanical when youre older.
I will need a valve repair again but apparently that is reccomended over a mechanical for someone of my age (27). However mine is my pulmonary valve.
