I was born with a congenital heart defect. It worsened as I got older and I had open heart surgery at 30 years old. I had my aortic valve replaced with a human valve. I also had an aneurysm on my ascending aorta from the defect and had it grafted at the same time. I will have to have another valve replacement in the next few years. The human valves only last 10-15 years. I have had mine 8 years now. I will get a mechanical one next one since we will be done having kids by then and I don't want to ever have that surgery again.
