I finall y had to have surgery to replace a faulty aortic valve and aortic root. The valve was only passing about 30% and the flow pressure had caused a weak spot in the aorta. I was probably less than 6 months from a blowout that would have cost me my life. I have managed to come from 300 pounds down to 270 and have a long-term goal of 200 pounds. Exercise has always been my problem, but with cardio rehab 3 days a week, I am developing a schedule to follow after rehab is over. 2399 days ago
