I had my MVD August 15, 2013 at Mass General Hospital. I was as wonderful as it could have been! I had great staff everywhere I was. The anesthesiologist was amazing!!!! He sat with me for a while before the surgery and really helped me relax for the surgery. My nurse in the ICU was great! She was basically with me all night long helping me get comfortable, vitals, meds. My future husband stayed with me the entire time, only leaving for food when a family member showed up. I was moved to another room my second night on a different floor. I had a view over the Liberty Hotel (it used to be a jail) to the Charles River. That night I watched the Hood blimp go around Fenway. The next morning I watched sail boats on the river. I was discharged and headed home. I am now 19 days post and feeling great. I just started my final year of nursing school today. I have a post op on the 9th of September.
