I'm glad you're waiting time is almost over and you can get this fixed and enjoy life a bit more!
You'll have to fill us in on everything...like what were your symptoms beforehand? What type of replacement are you having done? Mechanical, or biological?
I can tell you one thing, you are sure to feel better afterwards!!
By the way...do you think your Dr. was teasing you?! :)
My best wishes to you, Vicky!
