Maze Procedure

Last updated: May 2023

I had a mitral valve replaced, a tricuspid valve repaired, and a maze procedure two months ago. Recovery is very slow. I still have pain, but not enough to take anything for it. I get very tired all of a sudden. My biggest problem is I can’t seem to sleep through the night, and then I am tired the next day. I have the problem mentioned in this article where my stomach looks like I’m pregnant. I can’t complain though, I'm happy to be alive.
