Thank you... I'm just wondering... what happen to your mother's valve? I thought they were suppose to last longer than that... My first 2 OHS were repairs, the 3rd one was a replacement, also a porcine valve(in 2002) lasted six years only because I went through another pregnancy with my daughter(now 6 1/2 mos old) ...this is why I need the 4th OHS....

Thanks for you message!... I don't really know what to say... I guess there will be lots of thing to watch out for while on this medication... ...

Hi I'm sorry to hear about your boyfriend's tumor... how is he doing? I had kind of the same thing... I had an osteosarcoma on my right upper tibia. It was also malignant and isolated around my knee. It was telangiectatic osteosarcoma to be exact, very rare type of cancer. It's odd that they suggested amputation right away. When I was diagno...
