As I posted in my response to Balz


10 years ago I weighed 170 lbs and 5' 10. Now I'm 5'10" and 135. I am working with my pcp and my cardiologist to schedule a heart valve replacement surgery and they want me to gain some weight before the proceedure. As a side note, I got up to 180 lbs 20 years ago when I was traveling in Asia on business.

My next decision is between a pig valve or a mechanical valve. My daughter, who works at Egelston Chidrens Hospital specializing in cardiac kids, says that she can hear the mechanical valves from the doorway. I may go for the pig valve since I love pork. Does this make me a cannibal?
