My cardiologist diagnosed aortic stenosis. Angiogram ahead; possible surgery for valve replacement.

"There is a 3-5% hospital mortality associated with aortic valve replacement. There is an average survival rate of five years in 85% of patients suffering from aortic stenosis that undergo aortic valve replacement. Structural valve deterioration can occur and is higher in mechanical valves during the first five years; however, biological tissue and mechanical valves have the same failure incidence at 10 years, with a 60% probability of death at 11 years as a result of a valve-related complications."

Scary stuff. I'm having trouble dealing with it.
